I am not able to connect to MySQl server from MySQL Workbench.

I did mysql_secure_installation after I installed MySQL server, then I tried sudo option also but not working , my OS is Ubuntu 18.10 LTS This is the message showing on MySQL workbench:

Your connection attempt failed for user 'root' from your host to server at localhost:3306: Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost'

Please: 1 Check that mysql is running on server localhost

2 Check that mysql is running on port 3306 (note: 3306 is the default, but this can be changed)

3 Check the root has rights to connect to localhost from your address (mysql rights define what clients can connect to the server and from which machines)

4 Make sure you are both providing a password if needed and using the correct password for localhost connecting from the host address you're connecting from

How can I fix this?
