I can't speak for Outlook I do use Thunderbird on my desktop box so that my emails are both online and 'backed' up within Thunderbird.
I don't get any problems with requests from the Thunderbird pop email fetch.
In case it is a configuration issue I use pop.googlemail.com on port 995 with my google password saved in Thunderbird.
Is there any chance you have typed your password incorrectly into the Outlook account settings?

Not really new indeed. Well, sure, this particular face of the old problem is new, but the problem isn't. The problem is that Google doesn't really care about standards. Using Gmail over IMAP has been a PITA way back, your story doesn't surprise me in the least. Google wants you to use their own app, not some third-party standards-shmandards.
Yesterday I responded to a Google email advising me that I should turn off access to my Google account by "less secure apps" ... so I did.
This morning Outlook is bombarding me will failure messages whenever it tries to get emails from that account.
I just dug deep into my Google account and found out how to turn "allow access from less secure apps" back on (not recommended) and Outlook is a happy chappy again.
I'm using Outlook 2010 and not having that problem.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.

I get the same (I assume) pop-up often for my ancient yahoo account.
That you're only recently getting the pop-up there is a high probability something is going on with the server.
I don't believe the pop-up you're getting is from a virus.

related OT - speaking of tired tactics the latest Star Trek Discovery series they've played the Spock card, even latest ep. throwing in a bit of the original series Nimoy footage. (Were Disco ratings already falling that much?)
Guessing they went for old footage coz Leonard didn't reply to their messages asking him to make an in person cameo... I'm sure bit of a make up, some special fx and a couple of tankers of formaldehyde they could have made him look young [and quietly thoughtful] again.

This whole "being dead" business kinda gets in the way.
Personally I was hoping they'd go Gollum on him. The technology certainly exists now; now sure they could do it on the cheap however. Zachary Quinto is about the only thing I liked about the rebooted movies. This guy doesn't sell it.
