PostPlaystation web store two-step verification not working? Confirmed Sony issue
by OrangeRakoon » Tue Jul 25, 2017 9:17 am

Web store: https://store.playstation.com/#!/en-gb/home/games

Tried logging in, got sent a code as usual to my phone, but entering the code it tells me it is invalid? I have tried several times with resending the code and on two browsers (firefox/chrome).

The verification codes do seem to have changed format from letters to numbers since last time I successfully logged in, is this a problem with their site?

I need to claim all the PS+ games for this month - which I don't think I can do otherwise without logging in to each console's store separately.

Sign in and get your back-up codes and use one of those via your account settings/security/2-step.

OK when you open the link to the PS Store in your first post I'm guessing your already signed in but need the 2-step when making the 'purchase' so click on your profile pic which should open another page. Then click Account Details, Security and then click on the link in "For 2-Step Verification, please visit this page." which opens another page allowing you access to your back-up codes.

Ah, no unfortunately I am not already signed in, I need the two-step authentication to work to be able to sign in. Thanks for the suggestion though!

One of those definitely was said in a DM.

Haha. And now it won't even take me to 2FA screen. (No doubt because they're working on it in background.)

Thanks for that SoK, I'll just wait it out until they've fixed it then.

Ah! That explains it... I was trying to setup PlayStation accounts for my nephews last week and the mobile phone bit wasn't working.

I never got very far with it back when I bought it, but what little I played was enjoyable. One of those games I wish I could play on PS4.

The 2-step setup on PS3 is a strawberry floating disaster, I can't believe how convoluted it was.
