Revoking app passwords you no longer use

If you used App Passwords to authorize applications to access your Google Account, you may see errors when you turn off 2-Step verification. If this happens, re-enter your Google Account password. We recommend you go back to using passwords — rather than App Passwords — to access these applications. To revoke your app passwords, please follow the steps below:

  1. Sign in to My Account.
  2. In the “Sign-in & security” section, select Signing in to Google.
  3. Choose App passwords, you may have to reenter your password.
  4. Select Revoke for any application or device whose code you want to revoke.

Note: You'll need to reauthorize each application that has a revoked App Password by entering your username and password, just like you did before turning on 2-Step Verification. You might not be asked for this information the next time you use the application because some applications take longer to recognized that an App Password has been revoked.

In addition, remember to destroy all backup codes that you had been using to verify this account.
