HYPR PASSWORDLESS MFA SETUP GUIDE

Why am I Going Passwordless?

Thanks to new compliance requirements for multi-factor authentication, your company is planning to enforce a complex password policy. That means your passwords are going to get longer and your login experience will become more inconvenient. Passwords are slow, difficult to use, and most importantly – they’re not safe. So your company had a great idea to get rid of passwords. Your IT team wants you to have a faster, easier and more secure user experience. That’s why they chose HYPR to enable passwordless multi-factor authentication.

From now on,  you will be able to log into your workstations and your web accounts with your smart phone. HYPR is a fast, easy way to log in and is more secure than any complex password. This guide is going to walk through setting up your HYPR mobile app and pairing it with your computer.
