Authenticator backup was successfully created on my old phone,
BTW on which I don't think I installed or use the lastpass app it self, maybe installed but don't use it for sure.
When I try to restore authenticator data on my new phone it fails with:
"Account not restored"
Your auth.. accounts couldn't be added to this device from your most recent cloud backup.
I noticed that before I try to restore I have to login to lastpass app.
As mentioned here:
But I don't want to install/use the lastpass app on my phone !
All I want is to migrate authenticator to my new phone so as to get the auth request popups.
I don't use or want lastpass app on my phone I never need it on my phone.
I only use lastpass on my computers, the only phone use I have is to accept/renew MFA requesta every 30 days.
Why am I forced to install lastpass app just to restore the authentictor cloud backup?
Came across your issue while looking for Authenticator restoration help myself. I did follow the instruction to add LastPass app to my phone. It did allow me to get Authenticator installed and opened. I then uninstalled LastPass and Authenticator still works.
Unfortunately, when I restored my 2FA account, 90% of the sites were missing. If anyone can help determine if there is anyway to get those I would greatly appreciate it. Perhaps I didn't have a regular backup established. Given the absolute headache this will be, such a feature surely should be automated.
Background info is old phone got wet and won't operate.
