yahoo mail retreival from gmail

I have configured yahoo mail retrieval into gmail account via POP settings.
But started facing this error in gmail:
Getting error, Server denied POP3 access for the given username and password. POP access is limited to Yahoo Mail Plus subscribers.?

Although I tried configuring it again, yahoo login fails inside gmail.

Figured out, you need to enable "Allow apps that use less secure sign-in" 
in yahoo security settings.

Then you can configure yahoo account from inside gmail. J :)
