Trying out FreeOTP as my new TOTP code generator app, loading in TOTP
secrets, I tried something a little silly and:
(1) immediately crashed FreeOTP
(2) FreeOTP is crashing on startup, so I can't get in to use any codes
What I did: generated a QR code which used a non-ASCII UTF-8 character
in the Issuer section.
Specifically, my `issuer` was: Facebook₂
The intent was to hint at being a second facebook account in the Issuer
field, since FreeOTP makes the Issuer so much larger than the account
name. I should have done this experiment with the first code added, not
the 17th. Stupid of me.
Device: iPhone 6S
OS Build: 9.1 (13B143)
App: FreeOTP Authenticator / Red Hat / Version 1.1
I still have my old phone with the codes in, so I'm not locked out of
anything. Is this going to be an easy fix where an update can let me
back in with no data loss?
