Gmail two-step verification and Gmail Keeper

Recently I got a problem report fro ma Gmail Keeper user who want to backup his email and labels with Gmail Keeper, he’s having problem to get Gmail Keeper work. After some investigation he found that that’s because he have the gmail two-step verification enabled.

So if you have the two-step verification enabled for your Gmail account, you will need to generate an ‘application-sepcfic password’ for Gmail Keeper in order to let it access your Gmail account via the IMAP protocol.

Detailed instructions by Google here.

    I have 2-step verification setup, and working fine with several other apps. Gmail Keeper is crashing every time it starts though. Gmail is set to automatic backups as soon as it starts, and crashes as soon as it starts the backup. I can’t get in to Gmail Keeper to change the password because it crashes within a few seconds of starting everytime.

  2. jose says:

    OK, found a work around. Turn of 2-step verification temporarily. Start Gmail Keeper. Fortunately, when you turn the verification on again, the passwords for all other applications have been saved.

    Thank you, Jose! I had the same problem and GmailKeeper support didn’t answer my email, so you’ve just saved my bacon.

    Instead of doing that, you could just interrupt your network connection before you start Gmail Keeper. Or really idiot proof: take the network cable out while you start up GM K and change the settings.
    That way it is not able to start setting up network connections that will fail.
