Two Step WordPress Authentication: This Won’t End Well

Looking at my Security settings, there does not seem to be a method to resend the QR code to my phone. However, I have printed out my backup codes and have used one of them. I’d like to know how I generate a QR code to my new phone in order to have two step authentication work.

I believe that I amĀ well and royally screwed.

  1. I just recently moved the authentication to a new phone and got over the issue by creating a new secret in the Google Authenticator Settings for my user profile within the blog settings and not on WordPress. Maybe worth a try?
