Tightly controlled information access


You control information access

No one has access to your organisation’s data unless you invite them. You control who and what users can see and do in Xero.

Extra security at log in

Xero provides two-step authentication to better protect your account. Access to your account requires your password plus a unique code generated by an app on your smartphone.

Personal information stays private

Subject to our privacy policy, we don’t share your personal or financial information unless you give us permission. You can, for example, choose to let Xero Support view your data when you want help.
