Help required on how to move Microsoft Authenticator over to a new Android phone RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi 

    I wonder if anyone can explain 'Step by Step', how to change
    Microsoft Authenticator over to a new Android phone. (The phone will have 
    the same phone number), and then link back various Microsoft
    and Google email addresses back in.

    I am worried that if I change phone over I could end up getting
    locked out of my email accounts if I do something wrong. So
    want to make sure that I understand fully how to go about doing it
    before I change over phones.

    Any help/guidance would be much appreciated.

  • I have the same question.   Why in the world hasn't this been answered by now??!!!   All the info I can find is about how to back up the app from an IOS system (that is an Apple system).  What about backing up the app for an Android phone?  Or for that matter moving it to a new phone without losing access to your accounts?   IT IS IMPORTANT FOLKS!
