[SOLVED] Solving "Wrong Password" Error when Setting Up Gmail On Smartphone or Smart Device in SECONDS!

Amazon When you are trying to set up Gmail on your smartphone or smart device such as iPhone, iPad, Android phone, Android tablet in the email setting section, do you keep getting "Wrong Password", "Password Incorrect", "Cannot Get Mail", or "Account (null)" errors even though your Gmail email address and the password are both correct?

You keep on trying but it just won't budge. You keep getting error popup windows. You think maybe you've typed the wrong password. So you go to your computer and log in to Gmail and the password is correct.

So what's wrong here? How do you solve this error?

The error popup message may look like the following:

Password Incorrect
Enter the password for the Exchange account '(email account name)'


Cannot Get Mail
The user name or password for '(email account name)' is incorrect"

Root Cause

1. You have enabled the two-step verification process for your Gmail account. That's why when you've entered the correct password it's not enough to pass the verification process.
