Set your mobile password

If you are using Gmail, Yahoo, or Google Apps Single Sign On, you can set and change your Expensify password in Settings > Account. You will need this password to sign into the mobile apps. Also, some mobile phones only allow alpha-numeric passwords, so try resetting your password if you are unable to sign into your mobile.

Reset your password

To reset your password (in case you forgot it, or you still don’t have one) go to the reset password page. Enter the email you signed up with, and you’ll receive an email with a reset password link. Click the link and you’ll be taken to a page where you can choose a new password. Note that if you request multiple password reset emails, the previous email will immediately become invalid.

Check your Spam or Junk Mail folder first for the email containing the reset password link.

Digital Signature

To update your digital signature go to Settings  > Account and scroll to the Digital Signature section. If your company has digital signatures enabled, you will be able to update your signature here. To read more about this feature, please visit our digital signatures page.

Secondary Logins

Adding a secondary email address allows you to forward receipts to Expensify from that email address as well as to log into your account with that email address. To add a secondary login to your account go to Settings  > Account and scroll to the Secondary Logins section and hit the Add Secondary Login button. Expensify will send an email to that email address for which you will need to hit Confirm Email to validate that address and confirm this email as a secondary login. Once you've done this, you will be able to log in to Expensify either via the primary email address or the secondary one. 

After you've created a secondary login, you also have the ability to make that secondary login your primary login. To make that change, simply click Make Primary. change the email address (username) on your account, first add the new address as a secondary login, then make the new address your primary login by clicking make primary. You can then delete the old email address if wanted.

NOTE: Secondary logins can only be added if the email address is not an existing Expensify account. If the email address already exists, you must merge accounts.

If you are a member of a company that has Domain Control enabled, you can add your personal email address as a secondary login. This way, you will still be able to maintain the data in your account, even if your company account is deleted.

Wingmen: Delegated Access

Merge Accounts

To merge 2 accounts go to Settings  > Account and scroll to the Merge Accounts section. This will merge the two accounts into one. All of the reports, imported cards, secondary logins and most settings will be brought into your new account. Be careful because merging accounts is not reversible!

NOTE: Emails are tied to expense policies, and because of this, your workflow in Admin > Policies > [Policy Name] > People may be affected; for instance, if you are merging with an admin account. Please check the workflow of your expense policies after the merge to make sure the correct email is listed!

Delete Account

To delete your account go to Settings  > Account and scroll to the Delete Account section.

Please note: If your account is controlled by Domain Control, you cannot delete your own account. Only a domain admin can delete your account.
