Authenticator sync, migration or export/import to another phone (iPhone) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have Lumia 930 with the Microsoft Authenticator installed and a lot of accounts added. Now I have an iPhone and I have installed Microsoft Authenticator on it. I was able only to add my Microsoft account to the iPhone's Authenticator using my Microsoft login/password. How do I add all accounts from Lumia's Authenticator? Is there any option to synchronize Authenticator accounts?

  • Hi Arthur,

    For security purposes, Microsoft Authenticator App does not support sync, migration or export/import to another phone, also we can’t restore accounts from app backups.
