Google Tasks error connecting to Zapier

Hi all,


I’ve been unsuccessfully trying to connect Zapier to Google Tasks (to send tasks to Todoist).

I choose the proper Google account which I use for tasks and get the following message:


Zapier could not connect to your account.

The app returned "Invalid grant_type:".


No connection to the app is formed.

Has anyone had this issue and successfully solved it?

Note: I use the same google account to connect to Zapier. Not sure if that may be causing issues.

Thank you!
