Setting up an Android authenticator
Downloading the Authenticator app to your Android device

Setting the time on your device
Google Authenticator uses the time and other factors to authenticate your device. If your device’s time is different from the time on your service provider’s server, authentication won’t work. To change this:
Find Date & Time.
Check that it’s set to Automatic.
Close this window and return to the Setup Wizard.
