Back up your Google Authenticator codes in 3 steps
Google Authenticator now offers the ability to sync two-factor/multi-factor authentication (2FA/MFA) codes to your Google Account, which can be used to restore your codes on any new device you use. Here are the steps to set up cloud syncing of Google Authenticator:
- Update the app: Ensure that you have the latest version of Google Authenticator installed on your device.
- Sign in to your Google Account: Sign in to your Google Account within the Google Authenticator app using a personal Google account (Do not use your ATSU Google account).
- Enable sync: Once you’re signed in, your codes will automatically be backed up and restored on any new device you use. If you’re not signed in to a Google Account, you can still manually transfer your codes to another device by following the steps on this support page.
That’s it! With cloud syncing enabled, you can rest assured that your 2FA codes are backed up and can be restored on any new device you use.
