2FA Failed on Bittrex and Binance? Here’s what to do
Entering your Google Authenticator 2FA code correctly and having it rejected is a heart-pounding experience.
It turns out 2FA fails like this are happening all the time. It happened to a member of The Daily Hodl today on Binance. Fortunately, the support team at the popular exchange was responsive and got everything back on track.
The culprit is usually the clock setting on your phone, which can easily bring 2FA crashing to a halt. 2FA codes time out after just two minutes, and if the clock on your phone has “Automatc time zone” and “Automatic date & time” switched off, you’re at risk of encountering the dreaded 2FA fail.
It’s another reminder of why it’s crucial to be on point and always have 2FA backup codes – especially if you lose your phone.
