So someone happened to make a Facebook account with my personal, non social media email so I activated the google 2 step verification which requires password and code that gets text to my mobile phone. But since then the account in my mail app won't load up. I just get a prompt telling me my username and password is wrong and to go to Settings but there isn't an option to verify it.

Anyone know of a fix?

Thanks in advance

Yes, you need to enter the 16 character verification password that you received when you applied for the 2-step verification process.

I did through chrome but in the mail app settings there's no place to put that. I'm usually good at figuring this stuff out lol.

Thanks but I have a 5 day old newborn who's up for feeding every 2 to 3 hours so I'll try lol

Been there, done that, my friend. Congratulations on your newborn and may he or she brings you a great deal of joy and, by all means, be thankful. Have a great night. ;)

You can also download google authenticator for your iPhone to avoid the text. It can be used with other apps also.
