I received an email this morning asking me to turn off less

Customer Question

Hi - I received an email this morning asking me to turn off less secure access.
Since doing this I cannot now receive Gmails on my iphone 6s.
I have also received an email from Gmail saying 'review blocked sign in attempt' from somewhere in London - and was it me....I do not know what that refers to. I do not know if it was me or who it was.
I would like to go back to my original settings as everything has become a nightmare! Can you help please. Thanks, Chris
