I tried resetting my password but now it has to be 12 characters long; then finally the old one worked.

I have the opposite problem since today. On the mobile device (Android), I get an "invalid password" message, when trying to login.

Installed a new Android version yesterday.
PC login works.
Changed PC password (to 12 letter password).
Change works on different PCs.

Change doesn't work on Android mobile device.

Any suggestions?

Did it fix itself? Or did support fix it?

Is there a long term fix for this? I had the same problem a couple of weeks ago and had to change my password. That worked until today. I know with 100% certainty that the email/password I'm using is correct, having checked what is saved in Edge on another PC and in the iOS keychain.
