Google Authenticator time synchronisation guide
If you get the Invalid code message but you are sure that the code is correct, we suppose that the time on your app is not synced correctly.
To resolve the issue:
- Go to the main menu on the Google Authenticator app on your device
- Click Settings
- Click Time correction for codes
- Click Sync now
On the next screen, the app will confirm that the time has been synced, and you should now be able to use your verification codes to sign in. The sync will only affect the internal time of your Google Authenticator app, and will not change your device’s Date & Time settings.
In case of other questions on the application, refer to the guide.
