HYPR implements the Fast Identity Online (FIDO) protocol to provide a True Passwordless experience.

FIDO universal authentication framework (UAF) supports a passwordless experience. The user carries a device with a FIDO UAF stack installed; they can then register their device to the online service by selecting a local authentication mechanism such as swiping a finger, looking at the camera, speaking into the mic, entering a personal identification number (PIN), etc. The FIDO UAF protocol allows the service to select which mechanisms are presented to the user.

Once registered, the user simply repeats the local authentication action whenever they need to authenticate to the service. The user no longer needs to enter their password when authenticating from that device. FIDO UAF also allows experiences that combine multiple authentication mechanisms such as fingerprint + PIN or multimodal biometrics.

HYPR SDK for iOS solves several use cases with a variety of methods, employing out-of-band authentication to enable mobile device-based access.
