Unlike the traditional method of using only a single password, two-step authentication provides greater security for your accounts by requiring two steps to log into your Google apps. 

Google Authenticator is an app that assists in two-step authentication for your Google account, and allows you to use your phone as a second step in confirming your identity before accessing your account.

If you've used Google Authenticator before and recently got a new phone, you'll need to move the Google Authenticator app to your new phone so that it can be used for two-step authentication. Follow the steps below to do so.

1. On your new Android or iPhone, download and install the Google Authenticator app.

When you open Google Authenticator for the first time on your new phone, you'll be prompted to follow some on-screen prompts like the one above.Chrissy Montelli/Business Insider

2. Using a PC or Mac, open Google's webpage for two-step authentication and log in. When it becomes an option, click on Move to a different phone.

3. Click on either Android or iPhone based on what kind of phone you are using, then click Continue. The next screen should show a barcode or QR code.

4. Open the Google Authenticator app on your new phone and follow the on-screen instructions. When you are prompted, tap on Scan a barcode, and scan the barcode/QR code shown on your computer screen.

You can scan a barcode to easily add an account, or you can input a provided key to do so instead.Chrissy Montelli/Business Insider

5. After you scan the barcode, a six-digit code should appear on the Google Authenticator app. This code changes every few minutes for security purposes. Type the code into the corresponding field on your computer and click Verify.

The six-digit code will appear towards the top of your phone screen, with a small blue circle timer beside it.Chrissy Montelli/Business Insider

Google Authenticator should now be set up on your new phone, enabling you to use it for two-step account verification.
