Tinycam two-factor authentication

I’ve been using Tinycam Pro to monitor my Wyze Cams for years without two-factor authentication enabled in the Wyze Cam app (Android). Today I can’t access my Wyze Cams because Tinycam is requesting a 2FA passcode. I couldn’t find information as to why this suddenly changed so I enabled 2FA in the Wyze Cam app. However, entering the passcode received via SMS doesn’t work. Anyone here know what changed and/or a workaround?

It was posted elsewhere that this was fixed by forcing a Tiny Cam App Update:

Thank you but my tinyCam pro app can’t be updated beyond the version I currently have. I’ve found that this problem only exists on my tablets running an older version of Android. TinyCam installed on my phone with current version of Android doesn’t request two-factor authentication.

Something changed overnight that broke older versions of tinyCam. Looks like I’ll be needing a couple of new tablets.

Perhaps @peepeep can be of assistance in explaining. I do not use iOS. Take a look at this post…

Same issue running on older Fire Tablet never used 2FA.

I’m researching how to root my old Fire tablet and install a ROM with new version of Android. Looks like I’ll need Linux to accomplish this. Might just look for an inexpensive tablet. Nothing fancy since it’s only purpose will be to monitor Wyze cams. Any suggestions?

I have two ad supported fire tablets that have been modded by Fire ToolBox to remove ads/bloat and run wyze apps showing 4 cameras at once or swiping to see additional cams. Ive given up on tinycam pro since 2 factor fiasco. The tablets can be had usually for 40 bucks using Amazon’s Woot discount app.

Thank you for your reply. I ended up buying a newer version of a Fire tablet for 25 bucks off of eBay. I, too, de-bloated it with Fire Toolbox. TinyCam Pro works well with it so it’s all good now.

Why not just use the Wyze apps on tablets?
Ur welcome though. :wink:

Bluecloud - I also have the Wyze app on my Fire tablet, but I don’t know of a way to view all four of my Wyze cams at the same time using that app. I can do that with TinyCam Pro as well as access my other non-wyze cameras. So, that’s why. :slightly_smiling_face:

Group all 4 cams together in one group. Open the group in the App. Turn tablet to Landscape.

I cant log in wyze with tinycam pro…
I have a samsung tablet with android 14
The app does not ask for the two way autentification… Tinycampro version is 17.2.1
Would love to have this working, but how ?

Same issue here. Was working fine but now when I enter my username and password the app log shows an error stating “invalid username or password”

Going through the logs in more detail, it appears that the Wyze API address that TinyCam is trying to access is no longer valid. I suspect that Wyze made a change on their end that is preventing new logins. Mine was working fine until I logged out and tried to log back in

I have 5 and they all stopped working. If it doesn’t come back I’ll resell them all and buy others that work. Wyze screwed its customers. This is ridiculous.
