made a mistake when typing in the code? Check the code in your 2FA app or email and try entering it again.

entered the wrong code too many times? If you've entered the wrong code five times, your account will be locked for twenty minutes and you'll have to wait before trying again.
entered a backup code for another account? If you use more than one 2FA app, have more than one account in your 2FA app or you use more than one MYOB product, it's easy to enter the wrong code for your MYOB software.
