What you need to do is generate an application-specific password for each client you want to authenticate to your Google account. Then enter the application-specific password instead of your password or password + verification code. You can generate these application-specific passwords by going to this page (use your domain name instead of example.com): ...

The application-password that you create will need to be added in two places in your Apple Mail app. There is your Incoming Mail Server password, which is immediately visible under your account information. Below that you can see the selection for Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP). The default will be Gmail. Click on the drop down box and select "Edit Server ...

There's too much variation in how web apps implement user authentication to answer this. Some will delete the cookies they've created; some will destroy the "session" variables that are associated with your account and your current browsing...session; others will just redirect you to a login page. When I build web apps with user authentication, the user is ...

There's a lot of other questions answering this. Searching for openid would have helped you to find them easily. Anyway, the google openid is www.google.com/accounts/o8/id An advice, remove the plain text reference of your email address so that it won't be picked up by robots crawling the web.

It won't be required, because a lot of web apps devs are the type of people who do care about Facebook's privacy problems (unlike average Joe). It will increasingly be an option, but never nessecary, and Id say other options, like Twitter or openID will also be promoted. However, none of us on this site can predict the future.

I found it: When you visit you Google Account Settings, you can select Security in the sidebar menu. It will list 2-factor authentication. Click the edit button next to it. This will lead you to this page: https://accounts.google.com/b/0/SmsAuthConfig At the bottom of the page there would be a section about Trusted Computers. It will say that the ...

They added OAuth support around April of 2010 to make it easier for third-party developers to work with their site. IMHO it was a very good move on their part. While they haven't (AFAIK) announced any plans to discontinue Facebook Connect, they are moving forward more aggressively with OAuth and their Graph API as the new way to get things done. Basically, ...

Google only offers the following options: SMS Text Message Voice Calls Google Authenticator application mobile app 1-time use printable backup codes You could use the printed codes to access your account when traveling, but other than that you'd need a phone or device that can run the Authenticator application.

Google Calendar does not have the option to access password protected feeds. Try using Yahoo Pipes, which will generate an obfuscated feed url to use in Google Calendar. I've done this to access password protected RSS feeds in Google Reader. To clarify: password protected iCal feed => Yahoo Pipes => Google Calendar

Let us not forget OpenID, you used it to authenticate here. Don't forget it, and talk it up. In the same way that we all would probably have been better off without Microsoft's effective 2 decade hammerlock on the personal computing realm, we really don't want the gates of the internet falling into one firm's hands. (Yeah, the statement about Microsoft is ...

The current defacto solution for this problem is OAuth, which Google supports. Applications using OAuth don't need your google ID and password to get authorization from Google to access your data. http://code.google.com/apis/accounts/docs/OAuth.html http://code.google.com/apis/accounts/docs/OAuthForInstalledApps.html I'd suggest to the app developers in ...

You can't do that anymore. We heard that music video site Vevo was planning a major site redesign, and those news changes are rolling out today just as planned. The first major difference you'll notice is that the only way to sign up for an account is with Facebook, and existing users must now log in with Facebook as well. Source.

I ran into this problem as well, and after a while determined it's related to the Keychain Access where the passwords are stored. One forum I found suggested running a "Repair" of the login keychain (available via the "First Aid" menu item), which resolved the problem for some people. For me, however, the repair process found nothing to fix. Finally, I ...

As an additional observation to the other answers, always use the site's log out function when you are not on your computer. Always! Because: ...it's possible on some web apps that your login is associated with a persistent cookie, or your IP address, or whatever, and just closing the browser won't log you out. In such a case it's conceivable that ...

Some websites don't log you off unless you click "Log Out". Even if you restart your computer, those sites could keep you logged in (unless the cookies are automatically removed by your web browser); so anyone who opens that site on your computer could be logged in as you. I've experienced this with many websites. Hence, I recommend you always clicking ...

Looks like they are using iframes to pull in content. You can browse directly to these sites: https://docs.google.com/API/IGoogle https://www.google.com/calendar/ig I think Openbravo is taking advantage of the fact that you are more likely to have a Google account and be logged on than not. They attempted to do the same with Facebook just below the ...

I would first change your password, and make sure it's not something easily guessed. Then I would contact Google support. After you change your password, go to your gmail and at the bottom of the page, click "Details". You will see a pop up window that tells you who and where accessed your account. Above it is a "Sign out all other sessions" button, click ...

April 21, 2010. See: The Next Evolution of Facebook Platform We've also made it much easier to integrate with Facebook by using a simplified, standards-based method for authentication and authorization.We've adopted OAuth 2.0, a standard we've co-authored with the open community, including representatives from Google, Twitter, Yahoo, and ...

Google does not provide us any way to manually set the expiration limits of the verification cookies. This is an excellent case to offer up to them as a suggestion for them to add and option during issue time to auto revoke the code after a certain amount of time. Until Google implements some form of expiration control you could as manually change the ...

Two-factor authentication is now available on WordPress.com blogs. Wordpress.com blogs now supports two-factor authentication both via Google Authenticator as well as SMS. See Wordpress | Two Step Authentication for an how-to on setting it up.

On Google's support site, regarding 2-step verification, they speak directly of this issue and say this it more or less comes down to being sure that your check off the "remember this password" box Quoted directly from Google's support site: Soon after you turn on 2-step verification, you'll be alerted that your password is no longer working (see image ...

The vaguely named "Gmail" access is pretty much giving the application unlimited IMAP/SMTP access to your account (it provides an OAuth login which merely replaces giving it your password). In essence it is pretty much unlimited permission to your Gmail, so yes they could delete all your emails. Providing any sort of access to your account will be a risk, ...

I assume you want to create your control panel app so that users can log in to it via Google's login services. If that's the case, you can limit access to your app in at least two different ways: If you follow these guidelines, that is, create your control panel app with Google Apps in mind, it will be installed along your existing Google Services.

What is the advantage of Google forcing me to keep me cellphone on, working and with me at all times The point being if your password is stolen/compromised, there's an additional step required before it can be accessed by the attacker. keep me cellphone on, working and with me at all times when I don't have my phone and I'll want to login ...

Most likely. Web app developers are looking for ways to have less friction to get people using their service, and given that many of their users will have a Facebook account, this is often added as an alternate method of signin. However, I have seen that generally if Facebook is offered, Twitter usually is offered too, so if you are averse to using ...

You don't have to link the account specifically. You just use "Log in with Google Account" when you log in to Trello. They automatically match you to your previously registered account if you used your gmail address for that.
