Does XFCE Mail Watcher works with U2F Security Key for Gmail?

I was planning to buy U2F Security Key for Google Account and other Websites Accounts.

I just want to know.

Does XFCE Mail Watcher Plug-in works with U2F Security Key for Gmail Account? While Less Secured Apps is turned off. (which Google won’t let you if you have 2FA enable)

Maybe better chance of an exact answer asking the XFCE team directly.

I don't think it is supported. Is it still possible to create "App Passwords" while 2FA is active? Then you could try to use that for the notifier.

I never used one before. I’ll give it a try.
