With my new smartphone, I can't scan the QR Code. OK with Google authenticator !
I think this is by design. These QR codes are only meant to be scanned and understood by Authenticator applications like Google and Authy. Btw. If you ever switch (or worse loose) phones then choose something else as Google Authenticator.
I couldn't do that on my old phone. But just started it up and saw that an update is available for Google Authenticator which says it enables transferring accounts. Too late for me 😞

More than a year ago the QR codes compliant to Google Authenticator app became compatible with the NetIQ app as well.

"... The QR code of Google Authenticator format can also be scanned with the NetIQ Auth app (supported by the last iOS and Android apps)."
