Sorry for the duplicate posts, but you can use the command line flag

mysql --default-auth=mysql_native_password

CAUTION! Only do this is it's a local database and you don't care if other things stop working will you use the plugin. You will then need to restart the service without that flag to remove it.

I believe you can also modify your my.cnf or ini file depending on if your're Linux or Windows, respectively.
