Serial console shows Connecting to

I am having the same issue. My serial console just constantly shows Connecting to
I used the following sketch:

        #define BLYNK_PRINT Serial    // Comment this out to disable prints and save space
        #include <ESP8266WiFi.h>
        #include <BlynkSimpleEsp8266.h>

        // You should get Auth Token in the Blynk App.
        // Go to the Project Settings (nut icon).
        char auth[] = "xxx";

        // Your WiFi credentials.
        // Set password to "" for open networks.
        char ssid[] = "xxx";
        char pass[] = "xxx";

        void setup()
          Blynk.begin(auth, ssid, pass);

        void loop()

I have moved you into your own topic as while the issues may seem similar it is best not to tack onto other topics.

Is this your first Blynk project and has it ever connected before?

What versions of Phone, App, Arduino and Blynk Library are you running?

You seem to have an ESP… what type exactly?

Have you confirmed that you are using the same Auth Code in both you app project and this sketch?

Is there anything unique about your home WiFi setup?
