WLW 2012 and Blogger–Username \ Password Incorrect

Google have changed the login mechanisms to make them more secure, so with default settings in Google, WLW will not connect.

The only way to get WLW to connect is to enable “Allow less secure apps” in Google. It is unclear to me at this time (, what the real implications of turning on this setting are. However turning it on allowed WLW to connect.

The setting can be found in Google under My Account\Sign-in & Security


My preference at the moment is to write these articles offline, enable the setting in google, publish the post and then disable the setting.
