You can easily use the real Gmail app on your Android instead of IMAP (doesn't make any sense, the Gmail app is much more efficient, and it's push).
Maybe that's just enough to not have that warning anymore.

what you mean by Gmail app i already use the mail app on my mobile
There's a difference between the Gmail app and the Mail app.
The Gmail app is ALWAYS the white icon with the red M, it's push, and not IMAP.
The Mail app, depends on the phone (Samsung/HTC/etc etc have their slightly different own Mail app), you have to set up your gmail for it, while the Gmail app needs no setup (it just works immediately with your google login). The Mail icon looks different on different phones.
So check again on the phone, and use Gmail instead of Mail.

If you have multiple users frequently accessing the same account or more than one IMAP client accessing Gmail at the same time, you may reach a connection threshold and receive the error message, 'Too many simultaneous connections.'

Gmail currently has a limit of 15 simultaneous IMAP connections per account.

So you are sure to have only your laptop and android mobile on your gmail IMAP account ??
