In general, gmail will not allow any other application to log in in your account. But if you want to use your gmail account, for that you have to allow less secure app in your gmail account.

Hope this will help you.

So what should we do


You have to allow less secure app in your Gmail account. Login to your Gmail account and go to the security option. You will find a less sure app option.
