    So, now that two step verification has been advised for members to use, and suggested that we jump on, I attempted to make a two step code from Google Authenticate on my Android phone. I proceed to scan the QR code and I get the key I need to enter xxx xxx. I do so, but no matter if I remove the space or not, it gives me the error
    "unspecified error", not allowing me to add verification. What's going on? Using Chrome on Windows 7 Pro 64-bit.

    Here, https://gbatemp.net/account/two-step

    But it's currently broken and any generated codes do not work when doing it via phone >.> Which is why I made this thread to report the issue.


    Edit: Crap. Turns out it works now, but you have to be double sure that the code matches up.

    My deepest apologies for wasting your guys' time :(

    My apologies, the app was either not working properly or I did something wrong *sigh* I finally got it to work, my deepest apologies :(

    The code expires if not used fast enough, the solution is to try again with the new code.
