    My name is Har, and the website I need help with is

    I got a new Iphone on Boxing Day, and my Google Authenticator App hasn’t been working since Jan 1.

    I’ve disabled, enabled, and disabled the two-step authenticator on my new Iphone, and computer several times and I still get an Error Invalid message.

    I was still able to re-set my password, but everytime I try to put in the Google Authenticator Codes from my new Iphone I still end up getting an Error Invalid Message.

    I made by using my friends email address. My email is (email redacted) and my site is

    Can you please go to security and get ride of the Google Two-Step Authenticator for me. I have a lot of articles I need to write, and publish, and I would much appreciate any help from WordPress Support.

    Thank You

    Thank You for your help :)
