Which devices (tablets/phones) work with gateHub 2FA?

Hi Mate. 

I think it would not work on tablet reason being Authy asks your phone number and tablets do not have phone number so  2FA may not work with it.

Disclosure- Its just my opinion and I not a geek so I am not 100% certain of above info but still wanted to help you with what i thought could be the case.

Yes, every SIM card has a phone number. I'm not sure how voice calls work on this tablet, but SMS messages certainly work.

I think I'll have to buy a cheap Android phone instead.

have you tried google authenticator because i read it somewhere that it even works on laptop or computer if you add chrome extension to it ( i have never tried it ) but rather than authy try that on your tablet  and see how you go...

There is no official Google Authenticator for Chrome.

I can't even install Google Authenticator on this tables (and on all my other Android devices). Authenticator works only on two old tablets which don't work at the moment (and maybe will never work again).

I'll maybe have more luck with Authy.

What is the problem you are encountering?  Do you get an error message? You cannot find it in play store? Is it a compatibility issue?

Google Play Store says Authenticator isn't compatible with my devices without stating any specific reason.

I'm not sure if it is possible to get the exact reason easily (except by manually inspecting the application manifest).

I used to own a nexus 7 which had some other compatibility issues for different aps.  I didnt have authenticator on it at the time.  if i had to guess, Id say its a device issue.  :/

I have had 3 different Droid phones and have never had any problem with Authy or Google Authenticator. I think Verizon assigns a phone number to their tablets even though it isn't used.

I do have a problem with Web based Gatehub from my Moto Froce G in that I can sign in up to the point of entering the Google Auth 6 digit pin, but when I move from the login screen to GA to get the PIN I loose the Gatehub connection. I'm sure someone may be able to help me with this one. I sure would appreciate it.
