• The minimum version of Windows login you need depends on the following:
    • If your organization requires you to enter a password to authenticate, you'll need PingID for Windows login 2.3 or later.
    • If your organization has eliminated passwords, you'll need PingID for Windows Passwordless login 1.2 or later.

    If you're not sure, check with your organization's administrator.

Note:
  • If your organization requires you to enter a password when you sign on, it is not possible to use a FIDO2 security key to authenticate when accessing your Windows login account through RDP. If your organization has eliminated passwords, you can do so.
  • To use your security key to authenticate when you are offline, you must authenticate successfully at least once when online. For more information, see Authenticating using a security key for manual authentication.

The authentication flow varies slightly according to your organization's configuration policy.
