I have a google account that I want to log into from the Gmail App of and android device. I ONLY want gmail, not hangouts, drive, etc. So I am trying to add the account as a standard email address in gmail.
In my gmail account I have gone to settings>Forwarding POP/IMAP and enabled IMAP. Then following these instructions (https://support.google.com/mail/answer/7126229) I try to add the email in the gmail app on my phone.
I open up Gmail>Menu>Settings>Add Account type in my email address and then click Manual set up>IMAP On the incoming settings, I type my email, password, and "imap.gmail.com"
That works fine... but then on the next step...SMTP... On the incoming settings, I type my email, password, and "smtp.gmail.com"
And is says "username or password is incorrect" And then in my gmail account, I get an email titled "Critical security alert" that says "Someone just used your password to try to sign in to your account from a non-Google app. Google blocked them, but you should check what happened."
How can I get a gmail address added to the gmail account via IMAP instead of having to add my whole google account to the whole phone?
Thanks for your help on this!!
