Using two-step verification is a smart way to help protect
your data on Google, and other online services. With that protection, anyone

device that your authentication codes are sent to in order to gain access.

There are times the Google Authenticator codes displays
incorrect codes and it could be frustrating if you don’t know what to do next.
The most common cause for “Incorrect Code” errors
is that the time on your Google Authenticator app is not synced correctly. To

in.
