Reset forgotten password

If you can't log in to Xero because you've forgotten your password, you can reset your password from the Xero login page. We'll email you a link to create a new password to log in with. However, we don't email forgotten passwords for security reasons.

  1. Go to the Xero login page
  2. Click Forgot your password?
  3. Enter the email address you use to log in to Xero, then select the Send link button.
  4. Check your email. Once you've received your forgotten password email, use the link in it to reset your password.

Xero limits access to your account settings when there’s been a login from an unusual location or device. If you see a warning in Xero, you'll need to confirm it was a legitimate login before changing your password.

Why is Xero telling me I've had a new login?
