    This is what I did to solve my gmail problem

    1. While in the settings of the gmail visit Account and Import and click on other Google Account Settings
    2. Click on the Security tab at the summit and then throughout the page check out Account Permissions
    3. Click on the the vista all link near to Apps and Websites then click on the manage passwords link
    4. If you already were built with a password to the mail app on your own ios device revoke it then are generate a replacement and leave the page using the 16 long code open
    5. Then head to your mail settings on your gmail and where it says password go into the password displayed on your own computer or any other device and you ought to now be capable to access your email again.
