Your OTP code is incorrect

Having issues with defender and the 2 Factor Authentication. I activated 2 step earlier today and hit enforce. It sent me to my profile page to finish set up.

I scanned bar code and have it set on my phone, added the numbers to verify and that's when the error comes upit says:
“Your OTP code is incorrect. Please try again.”

I am using Google Authenticator app in iPhone. I'm wondering if the problem is that the hosting server and myself are in different time zones. I've heard that this can cause issues with Google Authenticator. Is this correct?

I have even tried adding php.ini file via ftp with the date.timezone="my time zone” but it didn't seem to change anything.
