New Features

Improved Workstation Unlock with Touch ID on macOS
The Touch ID authentication flow in the HYPR Workforce Access Client for macOS has been further improved by removing the switch user step, resulting in a faster unlock experience. As part of this improvement, the “Click to unlock with Touch ID“ option has been removed from the lock screen. See the Workforce Access 7.3.0 UI/UX Updates page for more information.

Enhancements

General Security Enhancements
The permissions for the health check endpoints underpinning the System Health widget on the Control Center home page have been tightened to return full data for authenticated requests only. In addition, minor security improvements have been made to the HYPR Workforce Access Client for Windows and the HYPR Device Manager.

Reduce Authentication Delays for Workstation Unlock
Improvements have been made to the Workforce Access Client for both Windows and macOS to reduce potential unlock delays caused by certain VPN/network configurations.
