Hi David,

I can confirm that using FreeOTP resolves the problem for me.

What a frustration, I am surprised that Google wouldn't add support beyond
SHA1 - perhaps a notice on the OTP documentation page would help others in
this situation.

Thank you so much for your assistance and links to explain the situation. I
hope to pay back the favour in due course.

Best Regards,

Callum
