Issue Description

I have a new phone (Motog7 play) and I need to transfer my google authenticator from my old phone. My old phone does not have the option at the top of the page to “tramsfer accounts” so I cannot import the old account. I am keeping the same phone number. How do I transfer accounts when there is no transfer accounts option? Thanks for your help.
