Troubleshooting issues with Google Authenticator

QUESTION:

What can I do if the codes provided by my application are invalid?

ANSWER:


In the event your Google Authenticator app is generating incorrect 2-Step Verification codes, you can try a few things.

First, please ensure the app is synchronised with your device. To do so:

Android
- Go to the main menu on the Google Authenticator app
- Tap the three dots located on the top right of the screen and then Settings
- Tap Time correction for codes
- Tap Sync now
 
iOS
- Go to Settings > General > Date & Time and set to Automatic
- Go to Settings > Privacy > Location Services and set to Always Use for Google Authenticator app

Should the issue persist after completing these steps, please try disabling 2-Step Verification temporarily using your recovery codes and then setting it up again.

Please note that if you have recently replaced the mobile device you used for verification, you will need to re-enable this feature on your new smartphone or tablet.

If you need help disabling 2-Step Verification or have any other questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.
