Backward Compatibility

New Features

Offline Authentication
The HYPR SDKs for iOS and Android now have the ability to perform a FIDO authentication even when no network connection is present.


Improved Windows RDP Login
When accessing a Windows machine via Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP), users are logged in directly after authenticating with the HYPR Mobile App and no longer need to press ENTER to accept an empty PIN. Please see the Remote Desktop Access page for more information about using RDP with HYPR.

Streamlined Web Login UI
The HYPR web authentication flow no longer requires the user to choose between Smartphone and Smartdevice as the first login step. Instead, users are presented with a unified "Sign In" button and are only prompted to select a passwordless login device if they have more than one device registered.

Java 11 Now Required
Client-hosted HYPR platform services now require Java 11. In addition, Python 3 is now needed for the installation scripts.

Jailbreak Detection for iOS
The HYPR Mobile App is now blocked from running on iOS if it detects the device is jailbroken.
