Using google advanced protection and thunderbird as email client

 Using google advanced protection and Thunderbird as email client

 To still use Thunderbird as an email client after enabling advanced security on google account, you have to change the type of login inside Thunderbird account settings.

Go to Tools -> Account settings -> Your gmail account -> Server Settings


And change the Authentication method to OAuth2.



After this, when you try to log in, there will be a pop-up window to provide your Google Account 

Password and Authenticate using the 2FA key.

Change to Oauth also in the SMTP settings to send emails.


After that, you are set!
