Hello....I currently use the two step authentication with one app, but I would like to use the feature in a 2nd authenticator for backup purposes. I can't seem to get the QR code I need in order to do that as I already have an authenticator setup.

Please let me know how to go about setting up the 2nd application.

Thanks

You will have to disable and re-enable 2FA to get the QR code and use that to setup both authenticator apps. Note that you can also backup/save the otpauth:// link provided by the QR code. Some apps may provide a way to backup the codes or transfer the code to another device if you get a new device or still have an old device (Google Authenticator can do this).
