Before you setup your shiny new smartphone and give away/scrap the old one, there is something you need to consider. Two things in fact.

2FA, 2-Factor-Authentication especially if you use Google Authenticator or Microsoft Authenticator (who call it MFA or Multi-Factor-Authentication) to securely login to your accounts.

Google Authenticator and Microsoft Authenticator apps do not automatically transfer the sites that you use to securely login to banking, mail and other secure sites.

There is a procedure to go through and it is not that straight forward and they all involve backing up and recovering the information BEFORE turning off your old phone.
