2 Step Authentication in Xero

Xero have been working on implementing 2-Step-Authentication accross all users over the past few months.

From tomorrow (10th of October) they will advise all remaining customers who are invited into an AU Xero organisation and have not yet enabled 2SA, that:

  • From Tuesday 16 October (next week): they will see a screen that prompts them to set up 2SA

  • On a rolling basis, between Tuesday 30 October and Friday 23 November 2018: 2SA will become compulsory on their login

Most cyber attacks are easily avoided
No one wants to think about cybersecurity, but the reality is that one in four small businesses experienced a cyber attack or hacking attempt in Australia and New Zealand in 2017*. Nearly all data breaches start with compromised passwords – and could be easily avoided.

While the introduction of 2SA can feel like an unnecessary change for some, keeping up with best-practice security is a vital part of staying safe and responsible in business – and 2SA is a mandatory requirement from the ATO.
