Microsoft Authenticator - Your backup is too large. Cannot save to the cloud."

David 5 Reputation points

I am trying to backup my authenticator app entries to migrate to my new phone. When I try to "Sync Account", I get the error "Your backup is too large. Cannot save to the cloud." When I checked the free storage space available in my MS account, I have 4.99GB free.

I have tried creating a new account, and I received the same error.

I have 189 entries in the authenticator.

MS Authenticator v6.2310.7174

    Might check if there are some unused accounts on your device that can be deleted to free up some space.
