Hi Everyone,
I dowload tor Messenger today and tried to use is with my google account credentials. The thing is that when trying to authenticate with google servers it fails, the credentials are correct. And I received a Google email in my account saying that google prevent a login from an application because it didn't comply with the modern security meassures.

This will likely be a common problem. We have plans to allow controlling the Tor process from Tor Messenger so you can refresh your circuit and get a new exit node, but that may also not solve the problem. We had (rather, have) a similar issue with TorBirdy and Mike Hearn from Google replied on how to solve this: You can try this and it may involve giving your phone number, so be careful with that.

Same issue here.

Tried to "establish a track record of using those services" like Mike Hearn said: I connected to my gmail account using Tor Browser, gave the code that I got by SMS, was connected there. But it didn't worked for Tor Messenger.
