--------------------------------------- original notice below posted 2/21/2020 ---------------------------------------
 
In order to improve security, Google will turn off access to less secure apps (LSA) and require that apps support OAuth, a modern and secure access method. LSA are non-google apps that can access your Google@UH account with only your username and password.
 
Google will turn LSA off in two stages:
1. June 15, 2020 - Users who try to connect their Google@UH account to an LSA for the first time will no longer be able to do so.
2. February 15, 2021 - Access to LSA will be turned off for all Google@UH accounts.
 
Who does this affect?
 - Windows users of Outlook 2016 (and earlier) not setup using G Suite Sync for Microsoft Outlook (GSSMO).
 - MacOS users of Outlook 2016 (16.13 and earlier).
 - any user that setup an email client (such as Thunderbird) with just your username and password
 - users of any application or device setup using CalDAV (calendars), CardDAV (contacts), or Exchange Activesync (Google Sync)
 
What should affected users do?
Email

 -  If you are using stand-alone Outlook 2016 or earlier, move to Outlook 2019 or Office 365, both of which support OAuth access. Alternatively, Windows users can install G Suite Sync for Microsoft Outlook (GSSMO). https://support.google.com/a/users/answer/153871
 -  If you are using Thunderbird or another email client, re-add your Google@UH account and configure it to use IMAP with OAuth.
 -  If you are using the mail app on iOS or MacOS, or Outlook for Mac, and use only a password to login, you’ll need to remove and re-add your Google@UH account. When you add your Google@UH account back, select “sign in with Google” to automatically use OAuth.
 
Calendar
 -  If you use CalDAV to give an app or device access to your calendar, switch to a method that supports OAuth. We recommend the Google Calendar app [Web/iOS/Android] as the most secure app to use with your Google@UH account.
 -  If your Google@UH account is linked to the calendar app in iOS or MacOS via CalDAV, you’ll need to remove and re-add your account to your device. When you add your Google@UH account back, select “sign in with Google” to automatically use OAuth.
 
Contacts
 -  If your Google@UH account is syncing contacts to iOS or MacOS via CardDAV, you’ll need to remove and re-add your Google@UH account. When you add your Google@UH account back, select “sign in with Google” to automatically use OAuth.
 -  If your Google@UH account is syncing contacts to any other platform or app via CardDAV, switch to a method that supports OAuth.
