Article Information

This section of support articles describes how to setup 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 when on the go.

Within the mobile app, users can: 

    • Access their self-hosted or cloud-hosted instance of Hudu
      • Note: 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
      • Note: Biometric authentication is valid for the same amount of time as the "idle user timeout" setting within the Hudu admin panel. We are currently working on a separation of the two.
    • Quickly switch between their instances of Hudu
    • View all clients within an instance of Hudu
    • Perform searches globally for clients or passwords
    • View client-specific information including
      • Name and logo
      • Address and/or location on the map
      • Website
      • Phone number
      • Quick notes
    • View client and vault passwords
    • View and filter passwords by password folder
    • View and/or copy password details including
      • Username
      • Password
      • TOTP
      • URL
      • Notes
    • Create new passwords
    • Edit existing passwords
    • Utilize device password autofill for both client and vault passwords
    • View both global and client specific KB articles

Minimum Requirements
