Error Method mysql_native_password

Hello, I'm new to PowerBI and I'm trying to connect to a MySQL DB, I have Connector / Net 6.5.6 installed, and it's been impossible for me to connect. I get the following error

No tengo claridad si el error es en Power BI o en la configuración de la BD MySQL.

Agradecería mucho si alguien me puede ayudar.
Muchas gracias.

Check Power BI data source prerequisites and try the latest version of Power BI Desktop.
