Amazon

Is anyone having problems signing on to Amazon using a verification code.
I cannot sing in as the code they give was not accepted.
Hope this is the right forum for my post

Are you sure its not a fake site you are entering it in?

A lot of those fake sites look legit but they are not, they get you to entering your details and then stop there on the site, by that time they have your details and if this is the case here you will have to go to the correct site and change your password ets.

I get loads of those fake emails everyday or so stating they are from Amazon and several other sites even though they are not from them.

I just ignore those emails etc.

Plus I have separate customized mail inboxes for everything, which helps a lot too.

What code would that be?

Amazon usually needs a username and password.

Either way, that also works fine for me.

I just added the 2FA (PRI SMS, SEC Authenticator) both worked fine for me.

I haven't had a problem. If you're using a mobile phone app to generate your second factor code, check that the time on your mobile phone is correct.

Along with that, could USA timezones be a factor if the OP is on amazon.com rathervthan .co.uk? That should be automatically sorted, but I wonder if it is.

Well the SMS code should still be fine no matter what time zone you are in, due to its them generating the code their end and just sending it to the user.

The Authenticator might be an issue, just took a very quick look at the code that we use along with the Google Authenticator or Windows / Microsoft Authenticator and all its doing is hashing a time stamp, so you would think there would be an issue in other time zones because I cannot see any time zone setting anywhere in the code.

TOTP 2FA implementations must be timezone neutral. From RFC 6238;

R1: The prover (e.g., token, soft token) and verifier (authentication
or validation server) MUST know or be able to derive the current
Unix time (i.e., the number of seconds elapsed since midnight UTC
of January 1, 1970) for OTP generation.
The fact a server is in the USA and the user trying to authenticate is in a different timezone is irrelevant.

I should state that my favourite RFC is obviously RFC 2324 with RFC 7168 a close second laugh
