Verification Code Not Working
and "Sadly there is still a error in the naming"
Where are you guys seeing these confusing strings?
Are they talking about the fact that the website refers to this as a password, whereas the app asks for a verification code?
Thanks for the replies gentleman.
Still no dice however, tried inputting the verification code provided to me to reset.
still wouldn't let me use the application.
just checking, did you follow the following steps?
- enter your mail on https://me.nfcring.com/validationCodeReset
- click on the link in the email you received
- enter a new password/verification code on the website that opened
- used this new password/verification in combination with your email in the unlock app
@Lafunamor Yes I've followed these steps many times.
Does not work.
Try setting an all capital password/verification code
@Lafunamor Just tried this, doesn't work... :(
@ShiranuiKira this may sound stupid but is your device connected to the internet?
if yes. please register with a different email address through the control app and try the verification again. It works fine for me. I just checked.
Maybe you should try a short verification code as this helps to prevent spelling/typing errors.
@Lafunamor Yes, tried connecting via wifi and via LTE.
Try uninstalling and reinstalling the app, and then try the verification code again.
If it still occurs, can you show a screenshot of the error message?
I've tried registering it, It makes the tag read tone, but doesn't move from the scan ring screen.
So, I can't even create a new account even if I wanted to...
make sure all other apps are closed and nothing is running in the background
It reads when i tap the ring contents selection.
And it writes actions with no issue.
Just doesn't let me register...
can you please check if you're using the latest version of the control app.
@Lafunamor I've reinstalled it a few times this week already. Pretty sure it is the newest from Google Play.
@ShiranuiKira Okay, one last shot from me.
Re-install (or clear the app data in the device application manager) both the NFC Ring Control and NFC Unlock apps.
Try each of these to see if one of them works:
Reset your password with something super simple like "asdf123", and make sure your device keyboard doesn't do anything funky like auto-correct on the fly or something like that.
Go to the NFC Ring Control app and register with a new dummy email just for test purposes, and use that email/password combo in the NFC Ring Unlock app.
Try the NFC Ring Unlock app on a different device.
Describe what you experience in step by step detail as necessary, so we can narrow down the cause of the issue.
Here is a step by step of the actions I'm taking.
- Uninstall both apps
- Re-install both apps
- Open NFC Ring Control app
- Tap register
- Hold NFC Ring up to device
- Hear NFC tag read sound
@ShiranuiKira Just out of curiosity, can you use the "Read" option on the NFC Ring Control app to read what's on the ring? You mentioned that it writes without a problem, so I'm guessing there's something on it right now. It shouldn't make a difference, but you never know.
"Read" option on the NFC Ring Control app to read what's on the ring?
Yes it's shows the contents of the tag if those contents are in a format that the app knows (e.g. email, text, ...)
Have you also tried the apps on another phone and see if the ring will allow you to register like I suggested? Does it work on another device?
Also, does this happen on both sides of the ring?
Go here: https://me.nfcring.com/validationCodeReset
Enter your email address.
Click 'reset' button.
Check your email.
Click the password reset link.
Enter new password.
Click 'Change password' button.
Open NFC RING UNLOCK APP
Use your email and the new password to verify.
If you don't need to verify the app then you don't need to register your ring and verify the app.
