Moving all your secure accounts to a new phone is now safer than ever

0

Getting a new personal or business phone is exciting, but it can also be accompanied by its fair share of hassle, particularly when it comes to shifting accounts over from the old device to the new one. Well, Google Authenticator is finally bringing a new feature to iPhone users that will make the process a lot less stressful.

Back in May, Google issued a few useful updates to its Authenticator app for Android users, including a new dark theme, and, more importantly, the ability to migrate two-factor authentication accounts from one device to another, as long as they both have Google Authenticator installed. The process is straightforward and secure, with no data sent to Google’s servers. Instead, the two devices communicate with each other directly using a QR code generated by Google Authenticator.
