To get SMTP credentials on Gmail, please following the guide below:
Step 1: Turn on Access to less secure app
Go to your Google Account > Security > Less secure app access > Turn it on
(Notice: Access to less secure apps means that Google recommends using OAuthen v2.
But it is still secure because it is using SSL & TLS encryption with 2048-bit.
You can change the app password any time in Google Security Dashboard. So don’t worry about it.)
Notice: If you cannot find the option “Less secure app access”, please turn off 2-step verification first (if you are enabling it), then reload your Google Account page, you will see the option “Less secure app access” then.
Turn on 2-step verification here
Click App passwords
