What's new for you on XING?


16.04.2024 Log in to XING only with e-mail address and password

For security reasons, you’ll no longer be able to log in with your username or mobile phone number in the future. Instead, you’ll only be able to log in with the e-mail address you registered with and use for notifications. This is also the e-mail address we sent this message to. You can find and edit this address in your XING settings.

We’ve already introduced this change in our mobile apps, and is due to apply on our website from the end of May.

If you need a CV and you already have a well filled XING profile, simply go to https://www.xing.com/lebenslauf and login with your XING credentials. Now choose a template and import your profile data to it. This saves you a lot of time when preparing your application documents.

From 17 February 2024, EU Regulation 2022/2065 on a single market for digital services and amending Directive 2000/31/EC (the ‘Digital Services Act’) will also apply to the XING service.

The primary aim of the Digital Services Act is to make the internet safer and more transparent for users in Europe.

In the interest of transparency, the Digital Services Act requires service providers to include certain content in their general terms and conditions.

This content includes transparent information about any limitations on information provided by users, details of any policies, procedures, actions and tools used for content moderation, including algorithmic decision-making and human review, as well as the procedural rules for the internal complaint-handling system.

In addition, providers must outline the rules for handling misuse of the service or its reporting and remedy procedures or internal complaint-handling systems. Furthermore, providers must be transparent about the recommendation and referral systems in use.

To comply with these requirements, we’ve updated the XING General Terms and Conditions (https://www.xing.com/terms/xing) to include some details that weren’t covered until now.

Are you looking for staff? Now you can show on your profile page that you are hiring and what exactly you are looking for. As soon as you have entered hiring details, the “Hiring” badge will be added to your profile.
