Okay, so for the safety of my Google e-mail account, I chose the 2-step verification option. This option is basically used to have more security for your e-mail account. For your own computer, you make that one your trusted computer. I have loaded the Code Generator on my phone which in turn would give me a code to use whenever I want to sign into my e-mail using a public computer. All I have to do is check the code number and add it after typing in my password. Now, the Code Generator constantly updates itself and gives you new access codes every time. So, when you are given a number, you only have so much time before you are given another one. Well, so far this has worked. I use both my laptop and Droid phone to access my e-mail. However, there is a problem. The e-mail that is hooked up to my phone is not working. It can't sync itself. So, I no longer get e-mail from two different sources on my phone, but only one. The e-mail connected to my phone says this:
"You're account ****@****.com could not be authenticated. If you have recently changed your e-mail password, please enter the most current password in settings to continue to receiving e-mails." I do that and it still doesn't work! So, I'm stuck with just an e-mail app that I had to get.
Would it be a better idea to just get rid of the two-step verification? I want my phone to be able to recognize my e-mail.
