TOTP Code Invalid on Linux

Recommended Posts

First off, great password manager! I've been using is for the past two years and development has come a long way since then!

Now, onto the issue at hand. Whenever I try to autofill a TOTP token, such as the Authorization token on Github, it tells me the generated code is invalid.
The code the Android App generates is valid, and both have the exact same token. Both me and a friend are experiencing this issue on Arch Linux.

At long last, I found the issue. Whenever I boot between OS's, the time changes, and the TOTP codes don't work if you've got the wrong time set on your machine.

Thats due to WIndows and Linux handling system time in a different way. Windows sets it to local time while Linux uses UTC (and calculates your local time based on location settings). You can fix this either in Windows or Linux. The following link contains two options, choose one and it should settle the issue.
