Two-factor login / Two-factor authentication


XING offers two-factor authentication to protect your account.

Two-factor authentication is a security feature on top of your XING password that provides additional protection for your data.

When using two-factor authentication you’ll be prompted to enter a special login code each time your log in to XING.

There are two different ways of using two-factor authentication with your XING account:

  • SMS codes via your mobile phone
  • Login code via a third-party authentication app (e.g. Google Authenticator or Microsoft Authenticator)

To set up one of the above two options now, just click here.

If you’d like to use SMS codes via your mobile phone, please make sure your mobile number is listed in your login details.

Once you’ve activated two-factor authentication you’ll receive a 15-digit backup code. Please store this code in a safe place as you may need it if your mobile phone breaks or is stolen.
