Versions of the app older than 4.5.4 (released September 28, 2018) will no longer work starting on or around December 1, 2018. Underlying authentication mechanisms have changed; the legacy auth flow will be removed at that time. If you are running an out-of-date version of the app, it will (unless it is very old) warn you that you need to update.
