    Cool that you enabled 2FA. I had a Yahoo account but migrated off of it due to all the breaches.

    All right, so I read up on this issue and it's apparently caused by a "time difference" (I believe between your time zone and the server's time zone).

    Try using the Google Authenticator app and let me know if it works. That's what I'm currently using and it's never given me any problems.
