Pandora is blocked in my google account for some reason I don't know. I never did it myself.
How to unblock Pandora in my google account?
I tried a different google account but Pandora was also blocked in that account.

The official Google explanation is at Less secure apps & your Google Account

Another explanation is at Enabling less secure apps to access Gmail and a video at How to Allow Less Secure Apps in Gmail and there are plenty of others like these.

Follow the procedure until you finish up with a 16-character unique password that you paste into the Pandora persona;ity that you're setting up for Google Mail.

In the "Checking Mail" tab of the personality you probably will have to enable
Authentication:  Basic
Secure Sockets when Receiving:  Always (TLS/SSL)
Port:  995

Sorry, I only use POP and forgot to consider IMAP, which I've never used so unfortunately help you with that.

Have you sent feedback to Brana asking for his definitive guidance (under Help " Send Feedback)?

on june 29 I got a reply fgrom Brana:
"Thank you, we'll be checking that out for the very next release. It's odd that they have it un-evenly implemented."
because I found this: https://developers.googleblog.com/2020/08/guidance-for-our-effort-to-block-less-secure-browser-and-apps.html
So it looks asif it is in Pandora coding to find the solution.
Since then I am waiting for the next release but hoped somebody on the forum found a solution.

Pandora is still at Version: 4.1.9 (released: April 24th 2022) which, from my experience since moving to Pandora just over a year ago, is an unusually long period between versions. So I hope that Brana releases a new version soon.
