Google App Passwords allows users to generate a password to be used for just one app. This way users don’t have to use their Google Account password. Plus, they can generate different passwords for different apps, with the option to revoke a password at any given time.
See the following documentation on how to turn on 2-step verification.
The following steps briefly describe how to generate an App Password

A modal should appear with your generated Password. Copy that password. After closing the modal you will not be able to see your password again. If you lose the password a new one will have to be generated. Please read the notes and instructions provided by Google.
