Why I can't sign in into my Gmail or Play Store at my Android?

Sign in using application-specific passwords

The codes that you’ll get with 2-step verification don’t work with all applications. There are a few applications that use information from your Google Account that require application-specific passwords (ASPs).

Using application-specific passwords

Examples of devices and applications that use ASPs include: Email clients such as Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird, and Gmail and Google Calendar on your phone. Below are two examples of what you might see when using an application that requires an ASP.

How to generate an application-specific password

  1. Visit your Google Account settings page.
  2. On the left, click Security.
  3. Under the "2-step verification" topic, click Manage your application specific passwords.
  4. Under the Application-specific passwords section, enter a descriptive name for the application (label 1) you want to authorize, such as "AdWords Editor – Desktop," then click “Generate application-specific password" (label 2).

    You'll then see the ASP you just created (3). You'll also see the name you wrote in for the device (4) and a link toRevoke (5) -- or cancel -- the code.

    Once you click Done, you’ll never see that application-specific code again. But don't panic: You can generate a new one whenever you’re prompted for an ASP by a non-browser device or application -- even a device or application you’ve authorized before.
  5. When you sign in to an application requiring an ASP, enter your ASP in the password field, and make sure you check the "Remember password" option if you want the application to remember the code.
