To connect a Google calendar to the Light Phone's Calendar tool, you will need to create an app-generated password specific for Light Phone.
NOTE - Currently this supports your main Google account calendar, but may not be able to sync all group/shared calendars. We are working to expand this compatibility in a near term update, thanks for your patience.
What is an App-Specific Password?
An App Password is a 16-digit passcode that gives a device permission to access to select aspects of your Google Account. App Passwords can only be used with accounts that have 2-Step Verification turned on.
Create an App-Specific Password
1. Log into https://myaccount.google.com
2. Ensure 2-Step Verification is enabled. Go to "Security" and then the section "Signing in with Google" to enable
3. Once enabled, in the same "Signing in with Google" section, click "App passwords"
4. Select app "Calendar" and device name to generate a password. This is the password you will enter on the Dashboard website to sync your calendar.
5. Return to the dashboard website, and connect your Google calendar by entering the Google account email and the app-specific password that you just generated.
Once successfully connected, you will see a notification on your Light Phone device confirming that the calendar has now synced.
Having Issues Syncing?
-Try manually entering the app-specific password. We've seen a few instances where copy and pasting the password has failed.
-Ensure "supervision" is disabled for the account if using a Google Family Link account.
Removing Google Calendars
If you'd like to remove one specific synced calendar, open the Light Phone II Calendar tool on the device and click the Settings icon. Then "Remove Calendar" and select the calendar you'd like to un-sync.
You can remove all synced calendars by either removing the tool from the dashboard website, or logging out of your Light Account.
