Hudu Mobile App - Start Here

This section of support articles describes how to set up and interact with the Hudu mobile app to utilize all of its features. This article gives a high-level overview of the scope of the mobile app.

In this article and others within this section, the word client or clients refers to the custom structure name you have defined in the settings of your instance of Hudu. This custom naming is reflected in the mobile app.




The purpose of the Hudu mobile app is to provide access to client-specific details, passwords, and KB articles and processes when on the go.

Within the mobile app, users can

  • Access their self-hosted or cloud-hosted instance of Hudu.

For security purposes, the mobile app will immediately sign out if it is completely closed out on the device. If the mobile app is put into the background on the device it will sign out after 10 minutes.

  • Utilize device biometric sensors for authentication.

    Biometric authentication can be enabled, as well as Password Authentication Frequency and Mobile Idle User Timeout set in Hudu >> Admin >> External apps. Mobile Idle User Timeout will be different then the Idle User Timeout set in Hudu >> Admin >> Security.

  • Quickly switch between their instances of Hudu.
