Thanks. Still some way to go with Geekzone mobile and metaweblog API but getting this done is a good step.

I could code the whole thing but the best shortcut was to use NSoftware controls. The package works nicely and it is easy to use with a variety of platforms.

Of course if you want more sophisticated platforms you can use services such as Auth0 or Authy but then pay per user.

Broke my phone. Need to re-do 2FA. Any way I can do this without my code?

Use the security code issued at time of enrollment and disable 2FA. Also use Authy because it syncs to other devices.

What's with the '2FA' authentication? I'm on more than a 100 boards around the world and I don't know of any others that require this.

It's not required. You can disable it in your profile (https://www.geekzone.co.nz/upd_user.asp)

 

 

But most "geeks" use 2FA on everything to enhance security. It is not a requirement but is recommended to enable this on your services (as well as using a password manager). Even if the likelyhood of your Geekzone account getting hacked is low, it is still nice to have.

Having a problem (re)setting up geekzone 2FA up on my win 10 phone.  I think there may be a new MS authenticator app causing the problem

 

short story of how I got to this point.
I had to reset my windows phone.  As part of that process I disabled my geekzone 2FA and had to reset my password (forgot it).  I'm not sure if this has any bearing on the problem.

 

When installing the MS authenticator app it didn't like installing the one in "my app library" so I got it from the store.  I noticed that rather than saying owned/install it had "get" so I'm guessing its a new version.

 

When I go through the steps to enable 2FA I get "Invalid code please try again".  Ive tried a few times but still get this.

 

 

 

The authenticator app seems to be working as I've checked it with my outlook accounts.

 

any ideas/help?

Tried another authenticator? I logged in twice this morning from different devices and all working. Have not disabled/enabled so might this although I think if login works...

Think its definitely the new MS app

 

Did a few tests on my android tablet
MS app didn't work
Google authenticator did work

 

Just to confirm it I disabled 2FA with the google authenticator 2FA code and repeated the above with the same result.

 

The MS app does work with my MS accounts but I don't have any other places I use 2FA to test it.

 

With that limited testing it would seem to indicate somethings up between the new MS app and geekzone

 

last update to the android MS app was 13-Dec so maybe something happened then?

Doesn't seem to be a Win phone 10 option for Authy. 

 

Might have to leave it for now and try again later.

Huge thanks to @freitasm for helping me get back into GZ after I suffered the same issue as @blakamin. I have now ditched Google Authenticator and am installing Authy.
