I was able to work around this by turning on 2-step verification, setting up app passwords, then turning 2-step verification back off. When you turn it off, it asks if you want to clear verification data. I said no; I don't know whether that matters. After turning it off, the app passwords link is still available, and my applications still login fine.
What happens? Well, depending on the path you follow, different things.
For example, you can be asked to fill out a form that asks you questions regarding information relating to your account, as is described in this article. Then, as that article says, someone at Facebook reviews the information and checks it against what they already have.
GitHub does not provide any way to set custom password policies; all accounts are independent. (Implementing such support would require the passwords to be stored in a plaintext/decryptable form, which is even worse for security.)

I changed my password using the Hotmail.com web site last night. For good security, I selected a long password of 19 characters. Logging in from the web worked fine, but when I tried to update my password on my mobile devices I ...
Microsoft now no longer restricts password length for the Windows Live accounts unless you want to sign in to Xbox Live on the Xbox 360:
I successfully set a 32 character password with a password manager, and signing in to Windows Live does not work unless I enter the full password, so it seems they are not limiting to the first 16 characters anymore.

No, there is no way to retrieve application-specific passwords. They are - indeed - for one-time-use - I was not able to use the same password on more than one app without getting a password invalid message. The number of application specific passwords is unlimited.
I just verified what waiwai said, and only a hash was transmitted to the lastpass server, and only encrypted passwords were returned. It looks like a key derived and stored in local storage.
To steal your master password, a vulnerability or compromise of the server would (or at least should) be needed for someone to modify the way the application behaves. ...

I believe this goes away if you are a premium user. Free users agree to the Terms of Service that allows them to do trickery like this. It is annoying, but remember that you are using a free service and you have to deal with annoyances like this.

According to the Google Product Forums thread referenced by the asker, this was a bug that Google eventually fixed sometime before 2016-03-16.
Unfortunately, for this sort of question where there is really no action that the user can take to resolve the issue, the best course of action is to report the issue to Google. Google’s main support article for the ...
No, Gmail does not currently have such a feature. It's unlikely that such a feature would be added. (And if such a did feature did exist, what's to stop your hypothetical attacker from knowing about it, and sending himself an e-mail to make sure that you didn't activate it.)
I don't think that exists.
Alternative: You should have a separate email address for those "users with limited rights". Forward automatically all incoming emails to that second address and let those users access only that address. Then, they can then delete any emails they want, that won't affect the main email inbox. This is extremely easy to setup in ...
