Setting Up Your Gmail Account
When you click on Step 1, a window will open that will prompt you to select the Gmail account you would like to send Listing Alerts and Drip emails from. Enter your password for that account and click “Next”.
The next page will prompt you to select which phone number your security code should be sent to and whether you want it to come by text message or phone call. Put in your phone number and click “Next”.
You should receive a security code either by text or phone call to check if it works. Type the code in the field provided and click “Next”.
On the next page, click “Turn On” to turn on 2-Step Verification.
Success! You will receive the following confirmation when 2-Step Verification is turned on.
When you click on Step 2, a window will pop up where you’ll be prompted to log in to your Gmail account once more. Be sure to enter the same email address and password you used in Step 1.
After you click “Next”, you will be sent a code verifying it’s really YOU trying to set up the app password. Enter the code in the field provided and click “Next”.
Almost there!! From the “Select app” drop down menu, select “Other”. Name the device you are on and click “Generate”.
The App Password will appear in a yellow box on the pop-up. Copy that password to your clipboard.
Now, return to the Update Profile page on your website for the last step!
Step 3: From the drop down menu, select Gmail as your email provider and type your email address in the “Email Address” field. Paste the App Password you just copied into the “App Password” field and hit “Save”!
