Hey!

With the current Google Authenticator update I lost ALL my codes and I didn't have recovery backup for all of them.  Cry
I tried to restore phone, but it doesn't not add the lost codes.

Any way could I take my codes back?


Thanks!

Google Authenticator is one of the worst 2FA systems available. If you lose your phone, too bad. If something breaks (update), too bad.

That's only if you fail to back up the strings/QR codes used to generate the OTPs.

After having all the codes in the phone, is there any easy way to backup them? Or I need to go to each website I get the QR code?

You can give this a try if you're using the official implementation and have a rooted phone:

Google is directly competing with the iPhone.  Think this was an accident?   Tongue
