I got a new phone, but when I signed in to the Authenticator app with my Microsoft credentials, none of my accounts are there. How do I transfer my authenticator data from my old phone to my new phone?

    Hello @Steve P

    Thanks for your post.

    Have you set up a email address to use it as backup of your data?
    Did you try to use transfer accounts ?

    Regards,
