Is QuickBooks desktop going to become compliant with the new Gmail Less Secure App's changes? Only app's compatible with OAuth will work with Gmail after 2/2021.

Thanks for checking this with us, KeptBooks.

 

We are aware of this update from Google's privacy policy. To continue the service, you are required to reauthorize QuickBooks Desktop to continue using your Gmail. 

 

Before we begin with the troubleshooting, make sure to update your QuickBooks Desktop to the latest release

 

Here'e how:

  1. From any open transaction or report in QuickBooks select Email.
  2. Select Send, you may be prompted to log in with your Intuit credentials.
  3. Click Continue in the Webmail Authorization window that opens.
  4. Select Allow.

For more details about the reauthorization process: Reauthorize QuickBooks Desktop to keep using Gmail.

 

If you have other questions, just let me know. I'm always happy to assist. Have a good one.

Thanks Charies,

 

My current QB is working fine. I received the message pasted below from Google and just want to see if QB planned to get OAuth compatible before the Google deadline 2/2021.

 
Starting February 15, 2021, G Suite accounts will only allow access to apps using OAuth. Password-based access will no longer be supported.

Dear Administrator,

We’re constantly working to improve the security of your organization’s Google accounts. As part of this effort, and in consideration of the current threat landscape, we’ll be turning off access to less secure apps (LSA) — non-Google apps that can access your Google account with only a username and password, without requiring any additional verification steps. Access through only a username and password makes your account more vulnerable to hijacking attempts. Moving forward, only apps that support a more modern and secure access method called OAuth will be able to access your G Suite account.

Access to LSAs will be turned off in two stages:

  1. June 15, 2020 - Users who try to connect to an LSA for the first time will no longer be able to do so. This includes third-party apps that allow password-only access to Google calendars, contacts, and email via protocols such as CalDAV, CardDAV and IMAP. Users who have connected to LSAs prior to this date will be able to continue using them until usage of all LSAs is turned off.
  2. February 15, 2021 - Access to LSAs will be turned off for all G Suite accounts.
