Bug in Amazon Show setting network

Just moved my Show from one of the house's networks to another, and discovered that one of the Show's prompts is wrong.

After entering the password, it tells me that 2-factor authentication is turned on and asks me to type in the code that was sent to my phone.

But I'm using an authenticator app, *NOT* SMS validation.

Once I realized what it wanted (and stopped waiting for the phone to beep), the change was accepted... but this prompt should be changed to say "sent to your phone or generated by your authenticator." Or something like that. Even better would be if it knew which mode we were running in and could just tell us one or the other, but that would be a bigger code change -- this one just requires improving a text string.
