Allow Less Secure Apps
Here is an article from Gmail that explains more about the process.
While logged into your account this link should take you to the area to adjust the settings.
Google App Password
As an extra level of security Google has a feature that you can use with its products (such as Gmail) called app passwords or app-specific passwords. The way this works is you can create a unique password for each application (in this case Lead Generated), this will not affect the main password for your account. You then use this password just like you would your normal password within the chosen application. In a sense, it is like an alternative password that will only apply to one application.
For more information about how to set this up please check out this support article from Gmail: App Passwords.
