I'm overseas on just my phone, could use a little help as hard to with out on small screen. Google keeps blocking the email client I use to send email, saying it prevented a suspicious sign in.

Can anyone tell me how to allow this access? I tried logging in using the gmail web interface. I'd rather not change my password if I can avoid it. Could use vpn I guess but that's a hassle.

Ta, Tim
