Authenticators

Customer Support
Is there a safe way to change authenticators?

I recently updated my iPhone, and with that i also need to switch Authenticators.

Is there a way to switch between the two authenticators without having a time in between with no authenticator attached?
Did you write down the restore code and serial number before you updated your iPhone? All you need to do is use those to restore your authenticator to your phone with no interruption in coverage.

^This.
if you wrote it down, or still have access to the app on the old phone, this is the easiest.. it just clones it across and your ready to go.

Otherwise, the only other option is remove and re add. As long as you are prepared.. have your email program/page open.. and do it quickly, you should only be 5 mins unprotected, at the most.
