Backward Compatibility

All HYPR components are fully compatible across the three previous/subsequent minor (X.X) releases

New Features

Remote Lock
The Remote Lock functionality introduced as a Preview Feature in version 6.5.0 is now available to all HYPR customers on both Android and iOS. Users can remotely re-lock via their mobile device by long pressing the workstation's icon on the My Computers screen in the HYPR Mobile App then selecting Lock Computer. To take advantage of the Remote Lock feature, both the HYPR Server and Workforce Access Client must be at version 6.5 or later.

Enhanced User Metrics
To better track usage metrics, a new /serverconfig/license HYPR API endpoint is now available to show the total licensed user count. Please see the API Reference for details.

Additional iOS Screen Customization
The colors and fonts used for prompt screens in iOS are now configurable in the SDK to better match customer branding. This also allows different settings for light and dark mode if necessary.


Faster Authentication on Android
The HYPR Mobile App for Android has been tuned to significantly reduce the time required to authenticate.

Better Handling of Expired Push Notifications on iOS
When the user clicks on a push notification which has expired, the HYPR Mobile App for iOS now displays the message "This authentication request is expired. Please try to authenticate again to continue."

Improved Logging and Troubleshooting
The Trace ID functionality has been expanded to cover websocket calls from the HYPR Workforce Access Client to the server.

Streamlined and Improved SDK for Android
A new Push Notification Adapter has been added to the SDK for Android to make it easier to implement push notifications for out-of-band authentication.

Support for YubiKey 4
The HYPR Workforce Access Client for Windows now allows authentication using a YubiKey 4 security key.

Upcoming Changes

Remove HATEOAS Links from API Responses (for v6.7)
To reduce API traffic and execution time, the experimental HATEOAS links section will be removed from all HYPR API responses in version 6.7.

Shorten API Access Token TTL (for v6.7)
Effective in version 6.7, HYPR API access tokens generated through the Control Center will have a TTL of 30 days. Note that the expiry date is reset to the current date+TTL each time you use the token, so if you access the API at least once a month the token won't expire. If you don't use the token for more than 30 days it will expire and you'll need to generate a new one.
