OTP generating apps are 20 seconds late on my system

Post by Pangolin »

Hi.
I've been using a couple of one-time-password generating apps (this one https://flathub.org/apps/details/com.gi ... .OTPClient and this one https://flathub.org/apps/details/com.gi ... henticator) for months.
Suddenly both apps are about 20 seconds behind in respect to my smartphone, where I run another OTP app that works normally.
What could have happened?
I tried to reinstall both the apps on my pc but the issue remains and now I can access web services that require 2-factor authentication only using the app on my phone.
My system's date and time are automatically set by the internet server network, so I can't figure out why those apps are lagging 20 seconds :evil:
Any idea?
Thanks.
I'm here thanks to Windows 10
