    Hey guys. For extra security, I always use like to use the Google App Password option (instead of my main password) on mobile devices.
    https://security.google.com/settings...y/apppasswords (don't have 10 posts to post a link)

    Got a new Z30 today (latest firmware running), and when I try to add my Gmail account with a newly generated App Password, it says the following:

    "please use your account password instead of an application-specific password". Why is this? Don't have this issue on my iPhone or Android devices. Why is BB insisting on knowing my master password?

    Interestingly, there IS a BB option when generating the App Password (which I used). And when I go to change the password in Account Settings, there is no field to change password....
