Just one easily guessed password can stop your business in its tracks. So Xero has put an extra bolt on the door to help keep your data secure.
Multi-factor authentication (MFA) adds an additional way of checking that it’s really you when you log in. It combines something you know (your user name and password) with something you have (an authentication app on your smartphone or tablet). This second layer of security is designed to prevent anyone but you from accessing your account even if they know your password.
Follow the steps for setting up multi-factor authentication and allow it to automatically send notifications to you.
When you log in to Xero, enter your email and password as usual. Xero Verify immediately sends a notification to your mobile device. Just approve it and you’re all set.
