Step 1: Go to the FIDO Control Center.

Step 3: Navigate to Workstation Settings on the left panel.
Step 4: Click the toggle to enable Offline Mode.
Step 5: Configure Offline Mode settings
|Length of PIN||This setting determines the length of the PINs to be generated (6-13).|
|Number of Offline PINs||This setting provides a limit on the number of uses of offline access prior to the user needing to do an online login to refresh their PIN count.|
|PIN Display Timeout||This is the number of seconds for which the PIN will be displayed on the user's smartphone before it is no longer visible to the user.|
|Offline Access Days||Access can be set for 7 to 30 days. Users will need to log in online to refresh their day count for continued use of offline access.|
|PIN Prompt Threshold (%)||The user will be informed on their mobile device when they number of available PIN uses are below this threshold.|
Users have to complete registration as usual and complete at least one authentication with the mobile app to start using Offline Mode.
In order to use Offline Mode, the user has to perform an online login to get the Offline PINs.
To perform authentication with Offline Mode, perform the following:
Step 1: Ensure the workstation is locked. Within the mobile app, tap and hold (long press) on the workstation's icon. An Unlock Computer option will appear. Tap the Unlock Computer button.
Step 2: The mobile app will display an alphanumeric Offline PIN.
Step 3: Type the Offline Mode PIN shown on the mobile device into the field shown on the workstation's lock screen. Press ENTER.
If the user has entered the PIN incorrectly, an error message will be displayed.
When the user runs low on PINs on their mobile device, they will be prompted with a warning message that indicates the number of PINs remaining. Once all PINs have been exhausted, an error message will be displayed on the mobile device.
The user is then required to perform an online authentication to replenish PINs on the mobile device.
