    FFS make the time for authorization code longer!

    Hello there.
    The time required to receive and open the email and copy the code Warmane sends to users for two way authentication, is way way longer than the time your website (and in the game login) is giving users to input the code... Why cant you make the code to last example 30 seconds or 1 minute? My email is full with Warmane emails just because i am slower than the 5-10 seconds required from Warmane to input the code (actually my email is slow at receiving the mails)... Its quite annoying... I dont see any security risk if you make that time longer at all...
    Thanks in advance and best wishes.

    I agree.
    Especially on the smartphone it's realy annoying because the code always expires before I'm able to copy paste it.

    if you are able to i'd suggest using the google authentication. switched from email a while ago due to this reason and haven't had any issues since.

    Have same problem, can't authorize because my code always expire and new email expire tooo. infinite loop ... Cause Warmane emails takes 5 mins to arrive to my mailbox ...

    Problem is also that i play on two machines => two email authorization every day ... I think it could remember two last Pc instead of only one ...

    I also agree that it would be a great idea for the codes to be available much longer.

    Weird, im on my phone and tried to log in and had to get a code. I opened a new tab, clicked two links to get to my email, opened the email, copied the code, closed the tab, pasted the code, and clicked log in and it worked. I dont understand how people have such a hard time with it. Have your email open and use ctrl+c/v.

    Also, if the time required to receive, open, and copy the email is "way way longer" than the code valid time, no idea how it's worked for me every time.

    for those with a phone: holding the entry will copy it to the clipboard, then just paste it in the window.
    Enter username, enter password, do captcha, hit login.
    Leave the browser, open the app, see the little timer, if it's about to expire wait a bit, hold the number to copy it.
    Go back to the browser, paste, done, you're in, mr hacker.

    I'm using the 2FA for almost all of my internet accounts (the ones that support it, others I get an SMS) and this way works great, it's not possible to have >5 fingers and fail at this.

    The Google Authenicator app does NOT use your google account to authenticate. Basically what happens is the Warmane site gives you a specific set of numbers/letters to store in the app. These numbers can be ingested via QR code. When math is done with the numbers against the current time both the server Warmane is using and your app can reach the same result with 30 seconds of error time allowed. Also as a result of how this is calculated, the code will expire, but when it expires it won't force you to reload the page like the email option.

    The Google Authenicator app isn't the only option either. For more information check:

    All of the apps in this post can be used instead of Google Authenticator.

    That might all be true but doesn't change the fact that the email auth code expires too fast.
    For those who wish to use email auth it would be nice that the expiration time was lengthened.

    It should be easy to fix that and I don't see a security threat either.
