What shall I do if a user cannot see the QR code?

Users must make sure they are using one of the supported web browsers. If the problem persists, users may need to clear their cache and cookies.

What shall I do if the Keyless Authenticator cannot identify the user's face?

The user needs to make sure that the face:
  • is fully visible in the preview on the screen.
  • is not covered by hair, a scarf, a hat, or a mask.
  • is adequately illuminated.
Make sure that there are no direct light sources on the device's internal camera as these light sources may compromise the enrolment process.

What shall I do if the Keyless Authenticator does not receive notifications?

The user must ensure that he/she has entered their email correctly, and that the phone has internet connection.
  1. 1.
    The user must disable "Do not disturb", "Do not disturb while driving" on the smartphone.
  2. 2.
    The user must verify that they have enabled notifications for Keyless Authenticator:

Understanding timeout events

Timeouts are a common foundation for security and a consistent source of hidden risk to an end user’s experience.
On Authentication: Most timeouts can be resolved by having the user repeat the action, such as authentication, and quickly proceeding to their next action – such as authenticating. On Pairing: Timeouts equally serve to limit the exposure of a user’s active enrollment.
Users may experience timeouts during registration for several reasons:
  1. 1.
    A user has reached an active QR scan screen – and is downloading the mobile application and this has led to a timeout of the QR screen. Simply have the user have their app open with their scan QR camera ready and select try again on the workstation.
  2. 2.
    A user has reached the QR screen, and the QR screen has vanished – or timed out – while the user is in the middle of enrolling or registering an authenticator. The user is unfortunately taking too long to complete the pairing. Try and have the user do this again during a troubleshooting session and identify which part of the process is taking the user the most amount of time.
