Hideez Key devices support passwordless authentication stadards developed by the FIDO Alliance: FIDO U2F and FIDO2. You can pair Hideez Key with any devices supporting FIDO Security Keys, including computers running Windows 10/11, macOS (High Sierra and later), and Android (version 7.0+) or iOS (version 13.3+) devices.
Services that support passwordless login methods include Google, Facebook, Twitter, and Dropbox, and other platforms.
Select Start > Settings > Devices > Bluetooth & other devices.
Press (short press) the button on the Hideez Key device.
After you press a device button, a blue LED lights up - three long flashes of variable brightness, which means that the device is ready for Pairing.
Click Add Bluetooth or other devices > Bluetooth on the Windows screen.
Select your Hideez Key device (for example HK-00203). The last five digits coincide with the serial number printed on the device box.
After the connection is established, the green LED lights up (blinks) on the selected device, inviting you to confirm the operation. You need to confirm pairing with a short button press.
If you don’t confirm the operation within 15 seconds, there will be no pairing and the LED on the device will stop blinking.
After clicking on the Manage button, the Hideez Key will require confirmation of this operation with a short press on the button. If you don’t confirm it in 20 seconds, Windows reports the problem and restarts the operation.
When the message “Take action on your Bluetooth security key” appears, confirm it with a short press on the Hideez Key button. A "Windows Hello setup" window appears with the menu "Add Security Key PIN" and "Reset Security Key".
