Log in to Xero using two-step authentication
Log into Xero using two-step authentication and what to do if you can't use the authentication app.
Log in to Xero using authentication code
- Log in to Xero.
On your phone, open Google Authenticator, and enter the six-digit code into Xero.If you want to identify this as a trusted computer, select the Remember me for 30 days checkbox. This only applies when using the same device with the same browser.
- Click Sign In.
Log in to Xero without the authentication code
If you leave your phone at home, or the authentication code is not working, you can still log in to Xero.
- Go to the Xero log in page and sign in as usual.
- Click I can't use my authentication app.
- Answer the security questions, then click Sign In.
You shouldn't use the security questions regularly, they are a backup option and aren't as secure as the authentication code.
