I can't find how to display the QR code used to enable the authenticator app on my phone. I want to display it on my computer (mac) so I can load it into the authenticator app. Alternatively how do I get a security key to enter manually into the authenticator app?

The directions are as follows - 

<<<Set up the app
  1. On your iPhone or iPad, open the Gmail app . Tap Menu   Settings  your account  Manage your Google Account. If you don't use Gmail, go to myaccount.google.com.
  2. At the top, tap Security.
  3. Under "Signing in to Google," tap 2-Step Verification.
  4. Under "Set up alternative second step," find "Authenticator app" and tap Set up.
  5. Follow the steps on the screen.
  6. To verify it's working, get a code from your Authenticator app. Enter it in your settings.>>>
In step 4, I DO NOT see "Authenticator app" as an option anywhere. Help!!!!
