  • Pair your device to authenticate with PingID and authenticate at least once.
You won't need to enter your password, but you will need to authenticate twice using PingID - when accessing the RDP and the second time when signing on to the remote Windows machine. Authentication varies slightly depending on your phone model, phone settings, and whether your device is locked or unlocked when sending the authentication request.
