Allow background activity

Why does the words allow background activity come up every single time I open up Pandora and it tells me I can dismiss it or I can open app settings I cannot figure out how to get it to stay away

Hi @Opiekeppler 

The battery optimization settings on some Android devices may be on by default and request access to background activity for some apps.

To see if it will help, try disabling these settings with the following steps:

  • Open your device Settings and then Apps.
  • Scroll to find Pandora or use Search in the upper right hand corner.
  • Select Battery
  • Next select Unrestricted.

If the above does not apply, you may need to look up the specific steps for your device. Due to the numerous models of Android devices, we are unable to provide step by step instructions for every device.
