One-time password give incorrect numbers overseas

slobizmanslobizman Junior Member

Normally a user in the US, I am traveling in Portugal. Since I've been on my trip, the one-time password is no longer working--the sites that I try to use it on say it's not a valid code. So, I go to my Auth app, luckily, and get it from there from my iPhone. Any ideas why this is happening?

    @slobizman - probably your computer has not adjusted properly for the time zone changes. This is almost always the cause of failed TOTP codes.

    Yes, that was it! Thanks. I did not have my location services on and so my time was off. Fixed now.

    @slobizman - glad I was able to point you in the right direction. :)
