Did your password also include non-Latin characters?
No, password contains only Latin chars.
It has to be related to character encoding. Sometimes there are multiple ways of encoding the same character. As an example, Unicode includes precomposed characters for many Latin-based characters, but these same values can be generated using combining characters and a base character (combining cedilla + c = ç). The solution is to somehow normalize them.
Out of interest, what character encoding is the database table (mybb_users) using @Matslom?
I tested with MyBB 1.8.10 and it worked fine.

@Matslom can you ensure that mb_string extension is enabled for PHP?
Yep, actually I didn't have enabled mbstring extension.
