So here comes their new authenticator. The old one issues a stern warning about the upgrade, and well, since my accounts are kinda somewhat important to me, I do install it.
Gotcha! say bright kids at Google. Should've been more careful and paid attention to the fact that this is a different application. All the account information is gone.
Guess what, you're screwed now. Catch-22.
- In order to get to your account, you need 2-factor authentication.
- In order to add a 2-factor account to the phone, you need to be logged in.
- Which is not possible since you need the 2-factor app with the account already added.
And not a word about it ANYWHERE.
Lemme see if I have my backup codes backed up now...
