Cannot log on to

  1. I have 2-step authentication enabled for Wordpress.com. I recently upgraded my iPhone. I disabled and reenabled 2-step authentication in order to move to the google authenticator on the new phone. I also generated a new application-specific password for WordPress for iOS but it will not work.

    What am I not understanding?

    It sounds like you've taken all the correct steps, but just to be certain I haven't misunderstood something, after creating the new application specific password you then signed out of the app, then signed back in using the new application password in lieu of the old one, or your regular password? Is that correct?

  3. Last night when I would try to login and the login screen would keep coming back. I couldn't get past it. This morning I opened the app and I was able to access everything without being asked to login. So I guess all is well now.

    Ah. I see. WordPress.com will temporarily lock you out if you have too many failed login attempts. Even if updated to the correct application password you wouldn't have been able to login in until the lock out expired.

    Glad you were able to get connected again!
