Adwords Editor problems even after Enabling Access

Hi,

 

Adwords Editor is still not allowing me to open my account even after Enabling Access for less secure apps, I even got the email telling me that this feature was turned on. I still get the error message in Adwords tellling me to turn on the feature. I have restarted Adwords several times in hopes that it would solve the issue. Does anyone have any ideas as to why this isn't working?  I am using Adwords editor v.10.6

 

Thanks!

Do you have 2-step verification enabled on your account, by any chance? If you do, then you need to create an app password for Editor 10.6 and below - see

https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/185833

We have just released Editor 11.0 - it should work correctly with any Google security settings, including 2-step verification. It doesn't require app passwords.

Are you using Editor 10.6? If at all possible, install Editor 11.1.2 (the latest at the time of writing). It works with all Google account security features.
