Love the idea of two-factor auth and was pushed to do it finally by the issues that plagued the Gizmodo author.
I enabled two-factor auth and it was all going really smoothly. I used Google Authenticator and two-factor setup to create some application-specific passwords, scan the Authenticator QR code with my iPhone to set it up, etc. etc.
However, now my iPad is reporting that it can't connect to GMail via Google Sync (Exchange) on the iPad.
I've taken the following steps:
- Attempted to use an app-specific password. Tried a few different ones just to see if they worked.
- Attempted to use a code generated from Google Authenticator on the iPhone.
- Looked up Google Help. It told me to use Google Authenticator to add my iPhone, but doesn't seem to an address an iDevice that isn't the primary device (i.e. Phone). I can't add an additional QR code as far as I can see.
- I can't navigate to the App Store on my iPad because the google sync login window incessantly pops up.
Any advice on how best to proceed from someone who activated his iPhone before an iPad?
The main thing I seem to be getting hung up on is that the process to connect the iPad is the same as the iPhone, except Google's process recommends adding an iPhone, and when I already have one and need to add an iPad, the only options I have are replace or remove.
