I don't think that's correct.  You can have Google give you an "app
password", which you then use for the password you enter in setting up the
imap account.  Claws treats it as a standard imap password, and Google then
allows Claws to read and send mail through gmail.  You don't have to allow
"unsafe" apps in general, and can keep 2-factor authentication.
