2-Factor authentication can become a huge struggle when you lose your phone or need to switch devices. Losing access to your 2FA data without creating a proper backup can lock you out of your account, with the tedious process of contacting your service provider to restore the access.

TOTP Authenticator’s Cloud Sync feature helps you to easily backup your 2FA data on the cloud. Your data is directly backed up on your Google Drive, providing you with total control of your data, as no 3rd party server is involved.

You can set up the Cloud Sync in a few easy steps:

1. Download and Install the app.

2. Purchase the Premium features in-app.

3. Go to the Cloud Sync screen.

4. Sign In with your Google Account

So click on the ‘Sign in’ button and select an account you want to create the backup with.

5. Grant Drive Permission

6. Enable Cloud Sync in Settings and set the Sync Priority

The 3 options include:

  1. Never Delete: In case of a conflict, conflicted accounts will be merged and synced automatically.
  2. Always Ask: In case of a conflict, you will be prompted to either merge or delete the conflicted accounts and sync.
  3. Force Sync: In case of a conflict, conflicted accounts will be deleted automatically.

Using Never Delete or Always Ask is a safe option. Use Force Sync only in rare cases, as it can irreversibly delete your data.

7. Click on the Sync icon on the home screen to sync.

Happy Syncing!
