Mobile App Home Screen Widgets
Users of the HYPR Mobile App for both Android and iOS can now add a widget to the home screen that gives fast access to their default workstation login. See the Home Screen Widgets page for more information.

Known Issues

Control Center User Passwords
Starting with version 6.18 you can no longer manually set a "recover" password when adding a new Control Center user. For existing users, you're allowed to change the password via the /cc/api/rpUser API call. However, this endpoint isn't working correctly in 6.18 and needs to be fixed in a subsequent release. Please contact HYPR Support if you need more information.
