Change Recovery Account on iPhone RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    How do I change the account used for backup and recovery in the Authenticator app? The account that I am using at the moment is connected to a domain that is going to be removed. So I want to change it to another account. But when I disable and re-enable iCloud-recovery it never asks for an account. Instead it uses the previous account.

    So how do I enable backups to another account?

    Thanks

    MS

  • I had the same issue and I found that only personal Microsoft accounts can be used in conjunction with the iCloud backup feature. If you add a second (or more) personal Microsoft account it'll allow you to swap between them.

    @BadderUp - there is no option to add an 'additional' Recovery account within the App.

    So...  question still stands...  how do you 'CHANGE' the Recovery account in the app?
