Chromium on Pinebook Pro blocked by Google: "This browser or app may not be secure"
#1
Whatever I do, I can not login to my Google Account with Chromium on Pinebook Pro.

"Less secure apps" is on.

Firefox works so far.

I don't understand what you are doing.
Are you accessing a website that blocks you when you use Chromium?

Indeed. I can't login to Google Account with Chromium on Pinebook Pro.

Ok, do you start Chromium from the panel (at the bottom), or through the menu?
Chromium starting from the panel spoofs the user-agent.
You can try to alter it to spoof a newer version (right click > properties).

Did you try to update Chromium with the package manager?

If all else fails, you can try to install a newer version with snap.
Jamie Phillips has a video where he explains how to do it.

I had the same happen, but it seemed it happened when I started Chromium before the network connection was established. When I quit Chromium, then reconnect the WiFi and restart Chromium it worked.
