Information to help if you encounter issues with the Google Authenticator or Authy app.
The codes that Authy or Google Authenticator is generating aren't working when I enter them.
This might be because the time on your Google Authenticator or Authy app is not synced correctly. To make sure that you have the correct time:
1. Go to the main menu on the Google Authenticator app
2. Select Settings
3. Select Time correction for codes
4. Select 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 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 and Time settings.
This can also be resolved by setting your Android or iPhone to automatically update it's time. For an iPhone this is Setting > General, Date and time > Automatically correct time.
There isn't a Google Authenticator App on my mobile device.
If you can't find Google Authenticator on your mobile device then it means that it has not been downloaded on to your device yet (as it doesn't come bundled with your device when you buy it). You will need to download the Google Authenticator App onto your device from the appropriate location:
· Play Store for Android devices
· App Store for IOS devices
· Windows Store for Windows devices
For instructions on how to do this see How to download the Google Authenticator app.
