Assuming that you have entered the correct password, you now have the following options:
1) Turn OFF 2-Step Verification for your Google account here: Google Account settings. Then enter your normal Google email password to log in. This is the easiest way to get it running.
2) If you want to use 2-Step Verification with your Google Account, you’ll have to create an app specific password for the Google Login app and then use that password to log in.
