Re-authenticate failed Firebase Android

I'm trying to create Change Password feature... but I don't know why getting the error, although I type the correct password. It's always returning failed.

I follow this code from
Manager Users Firebase

and this is my code

edtOldPass = (TextInputLayout) findViewById(R.id.edt_oldpass);

mCurrentUser = FirebaseAuth.getInstance().getCurrentUser();
String email = mCurrentUser.getEmail();
String pass = edtOldPass.getEditText().toString();

AuthCredential credential = EmailAuthProvider.getCredential(email, pass);

mCurrentUser.reauthenticate(credential).addOnCompleteListener(new OnCompleteListener<Void>() {
public void onComplete(@NonNull Task<Void> task) {
if (task.isSuccessful()) {

Intent newpassIntent = new Intent(ReAuthActivity.this, ChangePassActivity.class);

} else {
Toast.makeText(ReAuthActivity.this, "Incorrect Password", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();

Answer Source

This code to get the password is not correct:

String pass = edtOldPass.getEditText().toString();

Calling getEditText() on a TextInputLayout returns the contained EditText widget, not the string value of the EditText.

Change it to this:

String pass = edtOldPass.getEditText().getText().toString();
