MFA setup. Show secret and QR code

Hello

I want to use the Guardian MFA, but still allow users to use Google Authenticator.
This works out of the box, but the activation page only shows a QR code and not the secret to copy paste.

This presents quite a problem for out users who are signing up on a mobiledevice - its not possible to use your mobile to scan the QR code when the QR code is shown on the mobile :slight_smile:

Is it possible to get the Guardian Google Auth page to show both the QR code and the secret, so the user can copy/paste it to their Google Auth App?

(On a side note: Why does the Guardian Auth App only support adding new accounts with QR code? This means, that users signing up on mobile devices cant use the Guardian Auth App)
