Google Authenticator app on your phone generate code is dependent on your device time. To solve this problem I found 2 method to solve it.

  • Make sure your device time is correct and then try to use codes generated by Authenticator app.
  • Use the Google “Time Correction for codes” option in Google Authenticator settings.
  • Open Google Authenticator app on your device
  • Tap Menu > Settings and then Tap “Time correction for codes” option
    google-authenticator-codes  google-authenticator-settings-screen
  • Tap “Sync Now” option, after syncing you will get a success message.
