Xamarin.Android: error when calling Azure mobile services

In a mobile application I’m building with  Xamarin Android I connect to an Azure Mobile Services backend. Xamarin made this easy by providing an Azure Mobile Services component.

However when I tried to connect to Azure, every call failed with the following error message:

“The authentication or decryption has failed.”

I was able to fix the problem by switching to a more recent Android version in the emulator.
