How to Log Into MacOS Workstations When You’re Offline

Sometimes, you may find yourself offline or in an area without service. Luckily, you don’t need an internet connection to login with HYPR. Follow the steps below to use Offline Mode.

In order to use Offline Mode you are required to have successfully authenticated using your mobile app at least once while connected to the internet. This usually takes place when you’re testing HYPR for the first time after pairing your device with your workstation.

When you’re offline, ensure you can see this prompt on your locked screen:

passwordless_offline_mode_desktop_client

Then, go to your mobile app and long press on your workstation icon as seen below. Tap the ‘Unlock Computer’ button to obtain the Offline Mode PIN.

passwordless_offline_mode_desktop_client

The app will request a biometric or your usual PIN first before it generates an Offline Mode PIN.

passwordless_offline_mode_desktop_client

Type the Offline Mode PIN into the PIN field on your locked screen and you will gain access to your Mac workstation.

passwordless_offline_mode_desktop_client

Type the Offline Mode PIN into the PIN field on your locked screen and you will gain access to your Mac workstation.

Congratulations, you are now ready to go passwordless!
