Hey guys,

I have changed the cellphone and I have forgot to take a backup from Google Authenticator nor I find backup codes where I wrote it. I can still login to my Gmail and recovery email can also be accessible. I just want to remove Google Authenticator and want to have backup codes again.

When I click on backup codes its redirecting me to Google Authenticator again and again which I dont have it.

Can anyone help me out on this ?

Regards.
