I have android phone and MS Authenticator with enabled "cloud backup" option. I tested this account/backup on another android phone - the restore was successful. But after restore MS Authenticator on iOS I saw passwords. payments and only MS account 2FA(on android version exist 30 accounts). How can I restore or copy another 2FA accounts from android version to iOS.

    The only method to switch android->ios->android is to turn off the two factor at service provider, then setup accounts again on new device.
