I know I know.. This post is nothing near Power Platform or Dynamics, but it’s just a friendly reminder that you need to check you backup of the Azure Authenticator App on your phone.
I don’t really feel the need to explain what the app is, because I expect everyone reading my blog to be aware of the application on some shape or form (private and business). As a consultant your application might look something like mine (pages and pages of entries):
This is literally pages and pages of logins for customers that have 2 factor authentication setup. Loosing access to this will be a serious pain in the A**!! Well, that is exactly what happened the other day without me having any idea why. 🤬🤬🤬
Of course I headed on over to my backup just to see that THE BACKUP WAS NOT THERE!!
Well, the backup was there, but it was a stale backup from 1 year ago. For some reason the application had stopped doing the auto backups. 🤦♂️🤦♂️
Just make sure backup is turned ON, AND make sure that it is backing up automatically 😂
1. Open Settings
2. Turn on
3. If already on, click Details to look at the latest date for backup.
