Linux TOTP codes


For some reason TOTP codes generated from a linux extension don’t seem to be valid. I’ve tried the extension in both chromium and firefox with both having the same issue. I select my login and paste the TOTP code which all sites will say is invalid. If i grab a code from my phone, it works perfectly. Also works perfectly on chrome in windows.

Any ideas?


Hi Ollie - welcome!

I would check the system time on your Linux machine - if it is out by 30 seconds or more, it could lead to invalid codes.
