Microsoft Authenticator Backup

Copper Contributor

Is it possible to backup Microsoft Authenticator on an iOS device without having a "Personal" Microsoft account? Seems like it would it be better to utilize the work account instead for security purposes. It would also be great if it could backup to OneDrive instead of having to allow data storage to Apple's iCloud for this to work. Thanks for any insight/feedback on this!

No, it's not as far as I know. But you can enable secure settings for your personal account as well. Imagine changing job or losing access to the work account for any other reason.
