New features and improvements in PingID integration for Windows login.

Scan manual authentication QR code using native phone camera

New

It's now possible to scan the manual authentication QR code from the user's native device camera. When the user scans the manual authentication QR code with their device camera, PingID mobile app opens automatically, displaying the manual authentication key. This option is in addition to the existing option to scan the QR code from within the app.

This option requires PingID mobile app 2.3 or later, and is disabled by default. For information about how to enable it, see Installing passwordless Windows Login integration on client computers.

FIDO2 support

Improved

PingID Windows login passwordless provides FIDO2 support for PingID environments that are integrated with PingOne. Learn more: Updating a PingID account to use PingOne FIDO2 policy for Passkey support.

Support for additional languages and text using Portable Object (PO) translations

New

PingID Windows login passwordless now supports Portable Object (PO) translations for localized user interfaces. PO translations must be compiled into .mo files and stored in the locale folder within the application’s bin directory, usually found at C:\Program Files\Ping Identity\PingID\Windows Passwordless\bin\locale.
