I'm following Let less secure apps access your account - Google Account Help, specifically "Option 2", however when I click on Less secure apps, I get following message:

This setting is managed by your domain administrator.

I am the domain administrator, where is this setting exactly? I can't find it(

Please advise.

From the G Suite Administrator Help:

Sign in to your Google Admin console. Sign in using an administrator account.

From the Admin console dashboard, go to Security and then Basic settings.

To see Security on the dashboard, you might have to click More controls at the bottom.

Under Less secure apps, select Go to settings for less secure apps.

In the subwindow, select the Enable access to less secure apps for all users radio button.


This is the URL- https://admin.google.com/ac/security/lsa
