1. You set up e-mail notifications to Gmail.
  2. Sending e-mail notifications fails with:
    Authentication failed


From May 30, 2022, Google no longer supports the use of third-party apps or devices which ask you to sign in to your Google Account using only your username and password. As a result, the option Less secure apps doesn’t exist anymore, and the configuration procedure was completely changed.


    Email notifications can be set up in two ways:

    1) per backup task (Windows only)


    2) universally for all existing and future backup tasks (Windows, Mac)

    Per-backup notifications are more configurable, but are more complicated to set up.

    Global notifications are easy to enable, but are less informative.
