I am not sure that this is correct:

it says, see point 3.

    1. If you use other apps on iOS or MacOS that access your G Suite
       account information through only a password, most access issues
       can be resolved by removing then re-adding your account. When you
       add it back, make sure to select Google as the account type to 
automatically use OAuth.

    2. For any other LSA, contact your admin or ask the developer of the
       app you are using to start supporting OAuth.

    3. *If the developer won’t update their app, you will need to switch
       to a client that offers OAuth.*
