Security Keys

HYPR supports FIDO2 and U2F security keys to provide people with choice and flexible passwordless login. In order to use security keys your organization must enable them as part of your passwordless multi-factor authentication (MFA) protocol.

How to Pair Your Smart Key

You will be registering (pairing) your device with one or more systems depending on your use case. Pairing is unique to each workstation, application, or Identity Provider, so this process will repeat as your use cases expand.

Log into your computer.

Launch HYPR Workforce Access.


You can quickly search via the taskbar or Start menu for ‘workforce access’ if a shortcut is not not visible on your desktop.

Open the Workforce Access Client, then click Start Pairing or (if other devices have been previously paired) Pair New Device.
