How do I set up a gmail account with Bridge-IT?

Answer:

To use a gmail account within the Bridge-IT program follow these steps:

  • First, manage your gmail account by going to "Manage your Google Account".
  • Select "Security" on the left of the screen and make sure 2 Step verification is turned on in your account. This will make your google account far more secure.

  • Once 2 step verification is turned on, go back to "Security" and select "App Passwords"
