How to solve “Password incorrect” error?

There are quite a lot of reasons why you might see a “Password incorrect” error when signing in to Gmail using third-party apps like iPhone’s or any other e-Mail app. In some cases even if you type your account password correctly.

Here are the most common reasons you may see this error, and steps to take to access your Gmail account:
You’re log-in from a new location or device
To protect your G-mail account, Google might make it harder to log-in to your Gmail account if we suspect it isn’t you. For example, Google email might ask for additional information besides your user-name and password if you are traveling or if you try to log-in to your Google account from a new device.
1.       Go to from a different device you have previously used to access your Google account and follow the given instructions.
2.       Try signing in again from the blocked application.

Your android device or app may not support Gmail’s security standards.
Some examples of Gmail apps that do not support the latest security standards include:
·         The Mail app on your iPhone or iPad with iOS 6 or below.
·         The Mail app on your Windows phone preceding the 8.1 release
·         Some e-Mail apps (not built by Google) that come with your Android mobile Phone
·         Some Desktop mail clients like Microsoft Outlook and Mozilla or Thunderbird.

To help keep your Gmail account secure, we may block these less secure apps from accessing your Gmail account. If this is the case, you can follow the two steps.
·         Upgrade to a more secure app that uses most up to date security measures. All Google products, like Gmail, use the latest security measures.
·         Go to allow less secure apps and choose “Allow” to let less secure apps access your Gmail account. Gmail don't recommend this option because it may make it easier for someone to gain access to your email account. But some cases where you still might want to allow apps access include:
o    If you want to continue using an app you’re familiar with. For example, if you have a mobile phone and check your Gmail messages with the app that came on the other phone, you can choose “Allow” to continue using it.
