Change Your Google Token

You use the same token to set up either your mail client(s) or mobile device(s). If you do not remember your token and need to set up a new mobile device or email client, you can change your Google Token.

To reset your token, follow the steps above and click Activate again.

Once you click Activate, your existing token is no longer valid and any devices currently using the old token will need to be reconfigured with the new Google Token.  

We recommend you store your Google Token somewhere safe if you need to set up multiple devices or clients.
