You can’t be too careful with your sensitive information online – which is why two-step authentication is a great way to add an extra layer of security to your Xero and MYOB programs.
Two-Step Authentication is a secure sign-in process that combines something you know (your password) with something you have (your tablet / phone).
You sign into Xero or MYOB as usual with your email address and password and then you will be prompted to enter an authentication code. These codes are generated in the authenticator app just for you when you sign in, so you never need to worry about losing or forgetting it.
If someone has access to your Xero or MYOB password, they will not be able to access your data if they do not have your phone as they will not be able to generate the authentication code required.
If at any time, you cannot access your device, you can still log in using backup security questions.
