I have created a new administrator user as I upgraded to MySQL server 8.0.15 running on Windows 10.

The problem is I can't connect using the new user.

And when I tried logging using the new User via Workbench and mysql prompt, it also doesn't allow me to log in even though I had grant it.

 --default-auth=name Default authentication client-side plugin to use.
 --binary-mode       By default, ASCII '\0' is disallowed and '\r\n' is

                     \C and DELIMITER, in non-interactive mode (for input
                     piped to mysql or loaded using the 'source' command).
                     This is necessary when processing output from mysqlbinlog
                     that may contain blobs.
                     Notify the server that this client is prepared to handle
                     expired password sandbox mode.

Default options are read from the following files in the given order:

The following groups are read: mysql client
The following options may be given as the first argument:
--print-defaults        Print the program argument list and exit.
--no-defaults           Don't read default options from any option file,
                       except for login file.
