We connect to your Xero Accounts using OAuth. You will be sent to xero.com where they will ask you to allow us have access to your data. Once you approve, they will send us a ‘token’ which we use to retrieve data in the future. At any time you can go to your Xero admin console and revoke this token.
OAuth is an open standard for access delegation, commonly used as a way for Internet users to grant websites or applications access to their information on other websites but without giving them the passwords. This mechanism is used by companies such as Amazon, Google, Facebook, Microsoft and Twitter to permit the users to share information about their accounts with third party applications or websites.
At Uniformity.io we focus on security. OAuth is the best way to get your data. We do not ask you to send us login names or passwords. The token we receive is stored in an encrypted Key Vault store.
