Demo Video

If the Hideez Key device has not yet been used with the Hideez Client App, then the first time you need to pair Hideez Key with Dongle. During pairing, Hideez Key periodically blinks (lights up) with a green LED. To confirm, you need to perform a short press on the button. Watch the video.

If you don’t click on the button within 15 seconds, the pairing will not take place and the Hideez Client App will not be able to work with Hideez Key. To re-pair, you must re-execute a long tap.

Important conditions

  • Only the device of the session user can lock the workstation.

If this case seems unsafe for you, then the Administrator can add the requirement not only to touch the dongle with a Hideez Key but also to enter a PIN-code and/or click on the key in the settings of your profile.
