scan to email using gmail turns less secure apps security on

Product Name: WorkCentre 6515
Operating System: Windows 10

I'm pretty sure this is more of a gmail issue, not a xerox issue, but I'm hoping one of the geniuses here knows how to solve it.  I have my workcentre 6515 set up to scan to email, configured to my gmail account.  Every time I try to scan something (which is about 1 or 2 times a month) the scan errors out.  The problem is always with Gmail turning the "allow less secure apps" security feature back to secure.  Is there a way to keep it in the less secure mode, or somehow add the xerox to the "secured apps" list so I stop having this issue?

Hi sdgriff74, 

Thank you for using the Support Forum. Please see the this article on How to Setup Scan to Gmail.  This article is for a different product but step 27 explains the changes needed on the Google side.  If this does not help you will need to contact Google support for additional help.
