Change email password for a config?

NB: I am using a Gmail GDrive for the Cloud backup location.
I want to change the password on this email account and wondered how I might modify the configuration for the rclone job.

Effort: I ran rclone config and looked at the various options available. Nothing seemed to offer a way to change the password for the email account used.

I also googled on this but nothing came up.

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

The problem is that I don't know how I might modify the rclone configuration to update the email account password used.

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

rclone v1.49.4

  • os/arch: linux/amd64
  • go version: go1.13.1

Which OS you are using and how many bits (eg Windows 7, 64 bit)

Linux Mint 18.3, 64bit

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)

Google Drive

The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

rclone config

A log from the command with the -vv flag (eg output from rclone -vv copy /tmp remote:tmp)

2020/05/07 08:08:51 DEBUG : rclone: Version "v1.49.4" starting with parameters ["rclone" "-vv" "config"]
2020/05/07 08:08:51 DEBUG : Using config file from "/home/mike/.config/rclone/rclone.conf"
Current remotes:

Name Type
==== ====
GDriveMyDocuments drive
MyDocuments_M17A_from_Linux drive
remote drive

It would not care if you changed your password as you authorized it an an application.

If you check manage your account and hit security, you can see the apps that have access to your drive:
