I seem to be locked into a never-ending cycle of Security Codes to login/relogin at GoDaddy, and when I time out, I need to get another Security Code, then another Security Code, then another Security Code, rinse and repeat. It's insanity.

Is this is a new "Security Feature" at GoDaddy or am I just incredibly unlucky? Either way it's incredibly irritating and if I already entered a Security Code in during the session, why the hell does a timeout incur yet another Security Code request?

I think something is very wrong here.

I think the problem is that I rebooted my router and that set off GD's authorization system, but it doesn't seem to recognize that I've already authorized this new IP.

It's likely due to it being the weekend, where only a skeleton staff is there to handle the systems. It will probably work fine on Monday.

Why do you even use that?

Set up 2FA and Google Authenticator or similar and that's it.

Use what? It's the default security from GoDaddy the first time you log in from a new IP. The problem is that's it not working and makes me enter in a code each time, after I've verified like 60 times. Essentially I have 2FA without even enabling it. :xf.grin:

If I enabled standard 2FA I would need to enter in a code each time, right? That's what I don't want to do.

Also I don't keep many domains at GD and the account is primarily for selling (and sometimes buying) domains, so I'm not that adamant about 2FA security.

Still a major problem on Monday at lunch - called GD and there may be problems with Chrome-based browsers (though Firefox didn't work either) and although second-level support was brought in, no resolution was reached.

Rebooted modem again just in case I had a flagged IP, refreshed my DNS, tried logging in from multiple laptops/desktops/phones... but nada and it's most likely an issue with the GD authentication system not marking my IP/system as valid.

This is screwed up. >:(

Thanks guys, it feel better knowing I'm not the only one, and that it might actually get fixed.

The login problem just might be fixed as just I've closed down and re-logged in twice without the need for a code...

Can anyone else who was having problems confirm?

I tried a couple times, one time it asked me and another it didn't. We'll see how it goes though the day.

Yeah, it's starting to hit me this afternoon. Damn it's irritating to have to do this each time I get an offer or inquiry or just want to check out my account.

It's amazing how such a big company can so frequently be incompetent. Hate them so much!
