Still have the same problem. iPhone 11 ios16.1
unlimited elite package. I’m wondering if it has something to do with me previously having an android phone.

AT&T You should post a resolution to this error. Seems like this is happening all across. I am one among them.
I'm having the same issue. Just switched from an S22 ultra to the iPhone 14 pro max and I get the same "can't authenticate account" message.
Having the same issue switched from Samsung galaxy S21 to IPhone 14 pro max and it won’t authenticate my account. My device and the active armor app are both up to date
Same issue. Switched from a Pixel 7 pro to iPhone and it does the same problem being discussed here.
Having similar issue . It was working and now it tells me that it’s unable to complete registration
Same problem here. This app used to work but then yesterday I went into it for the first time in a while and it gave me the "Call Protect and Mobile Security are now one app" message (which I knew already since I had Active Armor installed already) and a "Continue" button. Tapping that gives me the "Hang tight we are setting up your account; it shouldn't take too long" message followed by "unable to complete registration. Please try again later." This used to work, so not sure why it's trying to set up my account again (and failing).
I did try rebooting my iPhone 12 Pro Max, and uninstalled/re-installed the app. Same problem.
Seems to be working now, I was able to get back into the app.
Now if it could also block spam text messages! :)
