Hi Frances,

You're welcome. Great. You only remember your main gmail password. You do not need to remember your 16 digit app password.

You will not need to enter the 16 digit password ***** on the iPad; it will be remembered/saved from now on.

No, you do not need to enter a password ***** on the iPad; your email will work automatically from now on the iPad without entering any password.

(Unless in the future, you change your gmail password, then you just generate a new 16 digit app password ***** at the google website.)

If you need anything else later, please let me know any time. Also, can you please take a moment to rate my service by clicking on a face icon / service option above, then click on Submit when it shows up.

Please reply at the box below if you still have any further question. Thank you,

No, you do not need to enter any app or any new password ***** on the iPad when accessing your email; your email will work automatically from now on the iPad without entering any password.
