When the 2-factor feature became implemented on the Synology, I was thrilled!. It was the best thing Synology could have done for the security of its users. The implementation however, seems to be have a design flaw I feel.
Here is the issue I am facing rite now. I setup 2-factor using the google authenticator app on my blackberry. When my blackberry recently recieved an over-the-air update, it reset my google authenticator app for some reason. Due to this, I was using the "lost my phone" link to recieve the code over my e-mail. Having done this only a few times to save time, I have now been greeted with the following message:
The account I am trying to log into, is the admin account. There was no warning (that I recall) that warned me of running out of code requests via e-mail (google does warn you when you get close to your limit) therefore I never put the app back on my phone.
If anyone can kindly help me as to how I can get back into my box, that would be awesome. I have a feeling I can still log into it via SSH, however I still don't know exactly what to do next (create new admin account?). Thanks.
