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.
