    I wonder if that is more a gmail thing instead of a WP8 thing. The reason i say that is, I get the same message about twice a week on my WebOS phone. Yet, once I enter the pass its okay for a few days. Did you try a reboot?

    Do you have 2-step activation setup on your gmail account? You might need to log onto a computer and enable the device.

    i removed the account and readded it and now its normal again

    no 2 step process

    it was strange because all the time it kept asking me to update account details it still was syncing. In the settings section it showed that my google account "needs attention"
