  New Gmail 2FA requirements for JobBag Outbound Emails

As of 30 May 2022, Google will require all apps that use Google Account emails to have 2 Factor Authentication, in addition to username and password.
This deadline does not apply to Google Workspace or Google Cloud Identity customers, but there will be an enforcement date released by Google at a later date.  Read more on Google's Support page here.

What does this mean for you and your Organisation? 

If you and/or your Organisation use Gmail to send emails out of JobBag, you must update your password and set up Google 2 Factor Authentication to continue. Follow the steps below to do so. Note: the procedures may look slightly different, depending on your own Google environment. 

If you and/or your Organisation also use email clients (eg., Outlook or MAC Mail or similar), the passwords for each of these applications must be updated to match. 

We recommend that if you don’t feel confident in completing this, please send this document to your IT department for them to complete it.
