Cannot connect with 'reader' user in Neo4j Desktop

Neo4j 3.5
Desktop 1.2.4

I created a user with the role 'reader'. I'm able to connect with it using cypher on the command line and with tools like graphxr. But I get a permission denied error when using Neo4j Desktop. However, if I look at the logs, it shows me that the user logged in successfully, even though I get a permission denied error.

Is there a reason I cannot login with a 'reader' user?
