Android app login fail

Using the official proxmox android app and I get login failed no matter what I do. Tried add local and new proxmox accounts. But the app just say "API ERROR 401 auth failed". i'm not using APIs for login or 2fa or similar. Just passwords.

Anything I can do?
Did you check the logs for any errors?
Could you share your syslog from the time frame where the error occurred?
cat  /var/log/syslog
Hey Folks.

New member here. I discovered this forum when searching for a reason why I wasn't able to login to the Android mobile version of Proxmox VE. There is another thread that suggests it might be something to do with 2FA and the Android OTP. Apparently, if you disable it, it'll allow you to log in. I've not tried it yet.
