Windows passwordless login

For more information, see Integrating PingID with Windows login (passwordless) in the PingID documentation.


In the initial version of Windows login - passwordless, the only supported authentication method is the PingID mobile app 1.15 or later.

Take the following into account before setting up Windows login - passwordless:

  • For users to use the passwordless login, they must already have a device that has been paired with PingID.
  • Windows login - passwordless includes support for Run as Admin.
  • Windows login - passwordless includes support for remote desktop (RDP). If you plan on using RDP, you must install Windows login - passwordless on both the accessing client and the remote computer.
