    Smile Update gmail password
    I got a new ipad and had to change my gmail password...no problem on the ipad and my iPhone, but I am unable to change it on my MacBook Pro as I get a message that “google requires completing authentication in safari”. When I go to safari, the message and enter user name and pew, I get “Mac OS wants to access your google account” and that allows macOS to “read, compose, send, and permanently delete all your mail from Gmail......”. I’m pretty sure I don’t want to allow that and I can’t change to my new password with doing so!

    Not sure I understand what's going on with changing your gmail password, but it appears that it may have been compromised and now you're required to change it. Do you by chance have 2 factor authentication turned on for gmail? It sounds like that is what is happening.
