MySQL 8.0.35 and mysql_native_password

I am currently using MySQL 8.0.33 and am planning to upgrade to version 8.0.35.

In my configuration file (my.cnf) I have set:


According to the MySQL 8.0.35 release notes found at, it is mentioned that "mysql_native_password now replaces caching_sha2_password as the default authentication method when the server does not support pluggable authentication."

I typically add users using the following command:

CREATE USER 'username'@'%' IDENTIFIED WITH mysql_native_password BY 'password';

Given this information, I am concerned about whether there will be any issues logging in with these accounts after upgrading to MySQL 8.0.35.
