Gmail account keeps asking for password in outlook

My Gmail account keeps asking for a password in outlook. It says to login and change the password on the web. I did and it still did not work. I tried to create a new profile in outlook and I get the same problem. I also tried to forward one Gmail emails to another. It comes up saying server denied pop3 access. It is a pop3 account and the settings are enabled.

Will second Alan's suggestion. The article suggests if It indicates "password incorrect". If you are still not able to solve the issue, generate an app password from settings and use it in the password field!

Hi,

You may need to allow 'less secure devices' to access your account:
