Google Authenticator does not work anymore

Post by deroderuiter » Wed Apr 03, 2019 12:13 pm

This morning I discovered that Google Authentication does not work anymore in my Joomla installation.
So I disabled is and enabled it again to get a new key. I scanned the QR code again with the Google Authenticator app and filled in the code. Then I saved is. However it does not work. Does anybody know how to solve this problem?

Not sure if this is related but my Google Adsense revenue has fallen dramatically since the 30th of March. I reported this on Google Ads forum and a couple of experts looked into it and said my Ad code was corrupted but i hadn't done anything to my website. They said it might have been caused by an automatic software update.

I don't know how to fix it. I am not skilled in this area.

This has nothing to do with the topic I started. I found out that my problem is related to a bug in Joomla 3.9.4

Not a Joomla bug.

This is the issue:

I installed Joomla 3.9.5 (with the bugfix for the Google 2FA) but 2FA still does not work, also not in a new Joomla installation.

Finally the problem has been solved. The time on the server of my host was a little behind what it should be.
