Hey Jeffrey,Yes I still need assistance with this issue. You can take your time to find an answer. I can wait a free more days.I plan to factory reset my device soon and I need to back up my 2FA configuration before I do that.

Few more days*

I understand.

Titanium Backup will backup any android app, including Google Authenticator. link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.keramidas.TitaniumBackup&hl=en

However, you must root your phone for this to be a viable option.

I would also recommend printing the Google backup codes too. This isn't quite backing up the Google Authenticator app, but they would allow you to reset the authenticator if necessary. This would only help for regaining access to your Google account though.

Backing up the app with Titanium Backup is the most complete option, in my opinion. It's saved me on a number of occasions.

Please let me know how this goes.

It would be greatly appreciated to rate me after this conversation. The rating can be done in the top of this screen.

Kind regards,

Jeffrey

Is there a way to backup Google Authenticator without rooting my device?I don't want to root this device because (1) I need to keep using Android pay and (2) the security of the device is important to me.

I understand.

I do see there is also a app called: Helium link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.koushikdutta.backup

This also should backup your Google Authenticator app.

Kind regards,

Jeffrey

ThanksI tried the application but it didn't work for me. There was an error that kept showing up, saying that they sent my data to Clockworkmod to review... So most likely it's not going to work.Do you have an alternative solution?

Understood.

Do you have Google Backups enabled on your cell phone?

Kind regards,

Jeffrey

it's enabled.

Great!

As a manual alternative, you can take a photo of the QR codes used to program the account into Google Authenticator.

Reloading those images would be faster than following the reset procedure with each site you use.

Kind regards,

Jeffrey
