HYPR User Guide
What is HYPR?
HYPR is a truly passwordless multi-factor authentication (MFA) solution that replaces traditional passwords and password-dependent MFA with your smartphone. It’s designed for convenience and consistency so you can access your computers, single sign-on, apps, and other resources using a device you already have and trust — your smartphone.
Why is Passwordless Important?
Passwords are hard to remember and they’re insecure. Hackers possess tools to harvest credentials through breaches, phishing attacks, and social engineering which are then reused on other websites.
With HYPR you won’t need to worry about a stolen password because there isn’t one to steal. Passwords stolen from other websites are also useless for gaining access to a resource protected by HYPR.
How Does HYPR Work?
HYPR provides a modern passwordless MFA experience by leveraging the latest security advances in mobile hardware and encryption. HYPR verifies your identity with additional factors such as embedded biometrics that are standard on modern smart devices.
User experience is top of mind for us so we design security to be easier and faster for everyone. All it takes is a simple tap on your mobile app to log into your computer, application, or service
Not a Smartphone User?
It’s okay! To offer you flexibility HYPR also provides alternative passwordless login methods such as security keys and built-in authenticators like TouchID on MacOS.
