How to set up Gmail account in Outlook

Gmail

Before you add your Gmail account to Outlook, you'll need to turn on two-factor authentication with Gmail and generate an app password from the Gmail website. After you have that app password, you can add your Gmail account to Outlook.
An app password is a one-time password that you'll use in place of your regular Gmail email password. It lets Gmail confirm that you're the person accessing your email.
