Set up with a QR code

If you have the app set up, you don’t need to verify your identity again to add it to other mobile devices. Instead, you can scan a QR code that you get from the app that is already set up. 

This is provided for your convenience. For example, you can use it to:

  • Move the app to a new mobile device
  • Set up the app on another device – like if you have a phone and tablet

If you don’t want to, or if this doesn’t work for you, you can verify your identity the same way you did the first time you set up the app.

What you need 

1. Your existing mobile device – with the app already set up.

App on android device

2. Your new mobile device – that you want to set up the app on. It can be a different type of mobile device.
