As one of our third party login options, we allow users to access Passpack with their Gmail login. Until now this was done via IMAP, today that’s changed.
Historically, we’ve had to change this feature a number of times. At first, it worked nicely, then Google made some changes. First we discontinued it, opting for friend connect instead. Then we reintroduced it with a the IMAP work around. This work around, alas, often caused Google to report suspicious log-in activity on your account. Yikes, that’s scary huh?
So, as of today, we’ve removed the IMAP workaround, and switched to Google OpenID. This will no longer fire off the warning.
Do Any Settings Need to Be Changed?
No. Though your login experience will be slightly different. Just go to the login page at passpack.com/gmail as usual, press the Sign In with Gmail OpenID button, and Google will take care of the rest.
Make sure you use the same Gmail as always, otherwise it won’t work.
If you run into any troubles, just let us know.
