Upon using 'Open Remote' or 'Save Remote' option in LibreOffice, I click on 'Add Service'; then in 'Type' "Google Drive", I enter my 'User', 'Password', check 'Remember Password' and click 'OK'. After a few seconds, the system asks for 'Authentication Code' and wants me to 'Enter the 6 digit PIN'. However, no such PIN is sent to my mobile/email. I tried by enabling/disabling Two-factor authentication in my Google Account, using 6 digit pin generated by the Google Authenticator app, but to no avail. Moreover, only the Google Authenticator app generates random 6 digit pin; for security verification, Google generates only 4 or 8 digit pin. I think this is a bug/problem that should be addressed.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. File-Open Remote or Save Remote.
2. In Service, click Add Service.
3. In 'Type' Google Drive, type User, Password, check Remember Password & click OK.
4. After few seconds, a box opens asking for Authentication Code, and want the 6-digit PIN.
No such PIN is sent to my mobile/email, even after repeated attempts. I tried to do the same in both my Linux (Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS) and Windows 10 Home OS PCs but the bug remains.
The software should have directly signed onto the Google Drive, when User & Password is entered; else it should have been paired to work properly with the Google Authentication system (viz. the Google Authenticator app).
