Problem enabling 2 step auth "Your code doesn't match what we're expecting."

Recommended Posts

Dear support,


Im having problem trying to enable 2step authentication using code generated by my android google authenticator app.

  1. In Evernote website i started the 2step enable process > received email with code > used email code OK
  2. In next step I received SMS with code which worked also.
  3. Finally I scanned QR code with android google authenticator app, but all codes generated by android app when filled in Evernote 2step website page returns message>
  4. "Your code doesn't match what we're expecting."


FYI> Im using Google Authenticator android app for other things with no problems.


Can someone please suggest me what can I do to sort this problem ?

I really would like to enable 2step feature.

I'm also a Premium evernote user.


Here it is the screenshot of the error I got when I put in evernote website the code generated by android google authenticator:




Thank you,

Dear Zen


I hope you put that in a support request (see below) as well,  because we here aren't support as such..
