Or just keep the phone synchronised to the right time. (The iPhone version of the app doesn't even *have* the sync option, and I think it just calculates the difference between the "true" correct time and what the phone thinks the time it.)
Something you find difficult is a lesson on how to play better, not a punishment for playing badly.

But syncing the time requires internet access. I can not speak to Apple devices as I do not use them. Before I started using another 2FA app I had to have two copies of the official app running on two different devices. I had my main account on my phone, which was obviously always online, and I had my alt account's security key on my tablet, which I kept offline most of the time to conserve battery. My phone very rarely had a problem that required me to sync the app, but my tablet would frequently require that I go online and sync the app.

Since switching I have only occasionally had to sync the time codes. The most recent of which was with my new phone as it, for some reason, was not automatically set to sync the device time. Since setting that I have not had to sync the time codes in the 2FA app.
