2fa not working on PC

I have a big problem on my PC. On every Browser (Edge, Chrome, Firefox or PC APP) the 2fa Code what i get not work. On my Smartphone is working fine but on my PC. I have update my PC App to the latest Bitwarden-Portable-1.31.3 an on my Browser the latest is 1.55.0. I dont know why is not work on my PC. My Windows 11 is very new, make it yesterday fresg with clean install.

Check the system time and date on your PC to see if it is out of sync. That is a very common cause.


i have the same issue. I am using Win 10 and Chrome and I do not get any 2FA codes anymore. Have to turn to my app to get them. System time is correct.

It did work until a few days maybe a week ago.

Just a guess, but this might be the issue:

I logged out and in again and it seems to work for now.

I have the exact same issue - I even went so far to disable the 2FA on an account only to get the completely wrong code from the App which wasn’t accepted by the website which is when I found this issue.

I disabled and reenable the date/time-check on Windows to trigger a re-sync (even though the time was identical with the time on my phone which had the correct 2FA-Code) and I logged out of Bitwarden and logged in again.

Could the issue be related to the fact that my PC was running for more than 24 hours (4 days to be precise) since I’m currently doing backups of all my stuff?

Thankfully I still have WinAuth as a backup for 2FA on my PC without having to use my Phone (which is a strong indicator that it’s actually a bug with the Bitwarden-Client and not with my PC-Time)

Edit: Just as I was writing this the 2FA-Codes from Bitwarden and Winauth synced up again and both are working again even though I didn’t try anything new in the last 30 minutes
