Invalid codes with two-step verification? What can you do?
Incorrect time settings on your mobile device are a common cause of invalid two-step verification security codes.
To fix this, you must synchronize time settings on your device:
- On your device, choose automatic date and time.
- If this does not resolve the problem, you may want to receive your two-step verification codes via email.
