What’s new in 24.5.0

Support for authentication using FIDO2 when connecting to a cloud store

Starting with the 24.5.0 version, users can authenticate to Citrix Workspace app using FIDO2-based password‑less authentication when connecting to a cloud store. FIDO2 offers a seamless authentication method, allowing enterprise employees to access apps and desktops within virtual sessions without the need to enter user name or password. This feature supports both roaming (USB only) and platform authenticators (PIN code, Face recognition, and Fingerprint only). This feature is compatible with Android version 9 and later.

FIDO2 authentication is supported with the Chrome custom tabs. If you are interested in using FIDO2 authentication with WebView, register your interest using the Podio form.


This feature is enabled by default.
