Additional settings for 2-factor authentication
To connect your Gmail account to BitsaboutMe using 2-factor authentication, you need to generate a separate password in your Google account. To do this, follow these steps:

- Here you can now select the app for which you want to create the password. In our case, we recommend that you select the option Other from the drop-down list and use a custom name e.g. BitsaboutMe.
