Note: Before migration, please ensure the up-to-date Verify app is installed on both your old and new devices.

Export Accounts

  1. Open your Verify mobile app on your old device.
  2. Tap the Gear icon > Export Accounts and select QR Code or Account Backup.
    • QR Code: Multiple QR codes may be generated if there are numerous accounts to be migrated. Please ensure to scan all QR codes while importing the accounts. The QR codes expire in 10 minutes.
    • Account Backup: An encrypted BIN file is generated to back up your accounts. Remember the PIN you've set when creating the backup, as you will need it when importing accounts.

Import Accounts

  1. Open your Verify mobile app on your new device.
  2. Tap the “+” icon in the right upper corner.
  3. Do either of the following:
    • Import via QR code: Tap Import Accounts > Obtain QR Code > Scan QR Code and scan the QR code displayed on your old device.

  4. The exported accounts will be displayed, tap Import.
  5. If your Identity Enterprise accounts have the verification prompts feature enabled, the Verify app in your old device will ask you to send the migration requests to your new device. Please authorize your migration attempts on your new device until all account statuses show “Migrated”.
  6. When imported, the OTP will be displayed on both your old and new devices and the verification prompts will be sent to your new device. It’s highly recommended to remove the migrated accounts from your old device once you finish the migration for security reasons.

Note: If the system still sends the verification prompts to your old device, it's possible that you haven't approved the migration attempts. To solve this, do either of the following:

  • Import accounts again and ensure to approve the migration attempts.
  • Remove Verify from your Identity Enterprise Workspace and set it up again on your new device.
