Easy WP SMTP Error

I have installed the above plugin in WordPress v. 4.9.1 and am running my site locally. I am using the smtp.gmail.com setup according to the instructions.

When I send a test email I am getting the following error and don't know how to fix this:

Warning: stream_socket_enable_crypto(): SSL operation failed with code 1. OpenSSL Error messages: error:14090086:SSL routines:ssl3_get_server_certificate:certificate verify failed in C:\wamp64\www\mysite\wp-includes\class-smtp.php on line 369
