Switch MFA Device / App

Wondering if there is any process for simply changing MFA device or application.

While the guidance on the site is to turn MFA OFF then back ON, that doesn’t work if you are a member of organizations that require MFA to be on.

I’m sure this is a relatively common experience but haven’t found anything about it in the forums.



Whenever I add 2FA, I note the manual code that goes with the QR code. So if I need to switch devices, I can re-enter the code. And/or use Authy – that’s really good about letting your change devices.

Otherwise, you’ll have to check with the app’s creator to find out the process.
