Hi I want to use two step verification for my Gmail/Google account but I heard if you use this with K9 Mail and Thunderbird you need to use App Passwords I've never done thins before and I have read this before https://support.google.com/mail/answer/185833?rd=1&visit_id=1-636392160493875275-2904245789 but I have both a Linux desktop and Linux laptop (Thunderbird) along with a Android smartphone (K9 Mail). Would I be able to use App Passwords on all of my devices?

I figured it out. For K9 Mail you simply chose app passwords underneath the Two Step Verification under Google security form there chose email for app then for device select other (customized name) chose a name then select generate from there enter the 16 digit password for both fetching and sending email and you should be good to go, and for Thunderbird its fully compatible with two step verification no need for app passwords. :)
