Invalid MFA Code


hi i'm unable to set virtual MFA, i've tried Authy and Google Authenticator. Both does not seem to work! Scanned th eQR code and keyed in the pin code twice but it does not authenticate. i can assure that the code is correct. Any ideas? MFA Error

keyed in the pin code twice

If you are typing the same pin twice you can expect the error you got. You need to key in two consecutive pins. Apart from this I see no reason for failure

Hi, when you're setting up the MFA, it should ask you for 2 different codes, I guess you're copying only the first code twice. Try to re-assigned the MFA, scan the code and wait for the 2 different codes to see if that works.
