Currently doing both... not using Pushover yet, just my standard carrier texts.Ditch the email messaging. Push your notifications. You'll be much happier.
I've figured out how to send Pushover notifications with pictures and hyperlinks from Blue Iris Actions without using external scripts. This approach uses curl and the Pushover API, and provides functionality similar to that recently described for Telegram . EDIT (5/16/2022) - For those who...ipcamtalk.com
Seems to be.My understanding of this warning is that using the account's simple username/password will stop working for less secure apps.
However, if you are using an "App Password" for the account the ability to use "less secure" applications will continue to work. Not recommended, but still allows access and continued functionality.
Additional content from Google Account Help has the following suggestions as how to address this security enhancement.

Do you use this? If so I'm interested what you think of it. I would really like to cut the Gmail cordProton Mail is the world’s largest secure email service with over 70 million users. Available on Web, iOS, Android, and desktop. Protected by Swiss privacy law.protonmail.com
Yep. I have used it for over 2 years. It works fine, has phone apps, it's free and Google can't get into it and then plaster ads all over my internet, based on what discussions I had in my Gmail account about a product 3 minutes before. I have multiple addresses. One is just a burner account I use when I sign up for something and you have to give them an e-mail account. I never look at it. You can set them up to purge things in the inbox after so many days, etc, etc.Do you use this? If so I'm interested what you think of it. I would really like to cut the Gmail cord
Not sure if you are referring to the bi app and just going to alerts or if there is something I'm missingIn the Pushover app, you can scroll back though all alerts/pictures. There is even a drop down menu so you can only display alerts from a certain app, or have them all display together in time order.
The only way (other than opening a port) to get a picture in the BI app when remote and not at home is to have VPN running in the background. Otherwise you get what you get now.Am I understanding that there's a way for BI to push a picture to the mobile app? If so how do you enable that? Right now when I get push notifications from BI app on my phone it's just text stating which camera caused the alert. At that point I connect to my VPN and use the app to view the alert, or wait for the BI -> Gmail -> SMS loop to get the picture via SMS.
Additionally, I'm intrigued by all the talk about the Pushover app. Is there a good tutorial thread about what Pushover does and how to set it up? I don't love the BI->gmail->sms path and how slow it is.
