Some of you may have realised that Xero has instigated compulsory Multifactor Authentication for logging into their software. You can either use a generic authentication app or Xero have made their own app to help with this.
Xero Launches Xero Verify
Xero has launched its own authentication app, Xero Verify, to give small businesses world-class data protection. The new app makes it easy for users to set up multi-factor authentication (MFA) on their Xero accounts.
It eliminates the need for codes and sends push notifications to your device for a fast and easy way to authenticate your login.
How it works
When you log in, Xero Verify will send a pop-up message to your phone. All you have to do is to open the notification and tap once to authenticate.
If you lose your device where the authenticator app is installed, you just need to turn off MFA, change your password, and then set up MFA on your new device.
