Hello, in your Google account settings, try changing the settings to allow access from “less secure apps”. Note, VueMinder is still secure. The password is encrypted and SSL is used for communicating with Google Contacts. The "less secure" terminology used by Google is a misnomer.

If that doesn’t fix it, check your firewall settings to make sure it’s not blocking VueMinder and reboot your computer.

I hope that helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
