Invalid auth token when connecting to Blynk through WifiManager

Hi All,

I have been using Blynk with WifiManager on my Wemos D1 Mini for about a year or two now, and it has worked like a charm!

Recently, I have updated my libraries to:
Arduino IDE to 1.8.10
Blynk to 0.6.1
WifiManager to 0.15.0 - beta

Since then, I am unable to communicate with Blynk, and on my Serial Monitor I see:

[46610] Connecting to blynk-cloud.com:80
[46821] Invalid auth token

Although when I connect to Blynk without WifiManager (Blynk.begin(auth, ssid, pass);), with the same token, it works fine.

Is this a WifiManager bug, or am I doing something extremely stupid?

Here is my code:


#define BLYNK_PRINT Serial

#include <WiFiManager.h> 
#include <ESP8266WiFi.h>
#include <BlynkSimpleEsp8266.h>

char auth[] = "My_thirty_two_charac_autho_token";

void setup()
{
  // Debug console
  Serial.begin(9600);

 // wifi
  WiFi.disconnect();
  WiFiManager wifiManager;
  wifiManager.autoConnect("SMS Config WiFi");
  Serial.println("Connected!");
  WiFiManagerParameter custom_blynk_token("Blynk", "blynk token", auth, 34);
  wifiManager.addParameter(&custom_blynk_token);

  Serial.println(custom_blynk_token.getValue());
  wifiManager.autoConnect("Blynk");
  Blynk.config(custom_blynk_token.getValue());
}

void loop()
{
  Blynk.run();
}

//gets called when WiFiManager enters configuration mode
void configModeCallback (WiFiManager *myWiFiManager) {
  Serial.println("Entered config mode");
  Serial.println(WiFi.softAPIP());
  //if you used auto generated SSID, print it
  Serial.println(myWiFiManager->getConfigPortalSSID());
}

Hi!, could you solve this issue? Im facing the same thing.

Thanks a lot!
