Google advanced protection issues

Hi I have Gmail accounts and unfortunately can’t use the app for them because of Google advanced protection which requires a physical security key or now the android key built into the device. I’d love to use k-9 mail for these accounts as I’m trying to wean of Google for privacy and k-9 is a fantastic open source option. There’s currently no android app other than the official Gmail app that works for Gmail if you have Google advanced protection turned on, but you can use the apple one and thunderbird for desktop. Is there any way to get this setup? Maybe a future update? Thanks

I also saw this same Google advanced protection in my Gmail account. I wonder whether K-9 Mail plans to fix these issues in the near future. Yes, I was able to access the same Gmail (Google advanced protection enabled) account using Thunderbird for Windows desktop.
