Adium logon to Google Talk.

Postby AndiJF » Fri Nov 10, 2017 5:59 am

With AIM closing down in December, I'm looking at alternatives. One of the people I need to talk to is not very technical, and we have not had much luck with Jabber, so I'm looking at Google Talk which I know they use, but I'd rather connect to it using Adium.

Unfortunately, Google Talk won't let me log on unless I turn on their global "Allow less secure apps" switch, which I'd prefer not to do. Can anyone suggest how I should proceed? I've read references to "application-specific passwords" but they all seem to apply to two-factor authentification.
I have never been able to find out precisely what feminism is. I only know that people call me a feminist whenever I express sentiments that differentiate me from a doormat...

Unfortunately, that doesn't seem to work for me. Your link leads to an error page where I get the message "The setting you are looking for is not available for your account."
