Google Documents Authorization

Filed under: Uncategorized — James Truong @ 1:56 pm

If you are getting an error message “authentication failed” on a scan station when trying to email a document to your Google account, go to your Google account and you will get this message.

Google has blocked off any third party applications that is “less secure” to google accounts. In order to access Google Docs on scan stations, you need to change the security settings of your Google account to allow third party applications. Click on the link to do so. https://www.google.com/settings/security/lesssecureapps


Have a nice day,
