Failed to connect MySQL Workbench to Metabase

Hello Community

I am providing the right credentials for connecting MySQL to Metabase.
However, I am getting the following error:

Could not connect to address=(host=zto.res.el.eee.intern)(port=3306)(type=master) : (conn=335) Access denied for user 'admin'@'' (using password: YES) Current charset is windows-1252. If password has been set using other charset, consider using option 'passwordCharacterEncoding'.

Please assist me with this. I would highly appreciate this.

Thank you.
Best regards,
