Google has announced that it’s disabling the Less Secure Apps feature from May 30th, 2022.
Reasons Why Gmail is Disabling Less Secure Apps?
Google has decided to begin phasing out Less Secure Apps from May 30th, 2022. Google Workspace and Google Cloud Identity users won’t be affected right away, but support for Less Secure Apps will still be phased out for those users at a later date.
LSAs are third-party apps that can access your Google account with simply your username and password, but they weren't made by Google. They raise the possibility that an unauthorised party may attempt to take control of your account.

An app password works like an alternate password for your account. It can only be used by the applications you share it with, so it’s more secure than sharing your primary password.
