Which MySQL driver did you install?  Are you able to connect to the MySQL database with the same driver via Workbench? Did you specify the port 3306 as part of your server name?  Are you sure your MySQL server supports encrypted connections?

Did you use latest driver? And You can try connect to MySQL database, if the connection is successful in MySQL workbench, use same connection string and make sure that you use Database credential in Power BI Desktop to connect to the MySQL database.
