    I hear that Google doesn't let you back up your account data, how do I safely transfer it over to a new 2SV program?

    I think you'll have to re-setup every account that uses 2FA to use the new authenticator.

    Next time take a screenshot of the QRCODE. Store it in a safe place and next time you need to move or reset it you scan again the code.... done.
