Untether Yourself with the Army BYOD App

Use The Hypori Army App to Access A365


Let’s be clear; no one wants to be more accessible than the requisite 24/7 that most leaders are right now. That said, no one also likes to drop what they are doing to jump on a computer only to find out there’s no dang CAC reader! Blast you ActiveClient!

The Hypori Army BYOD app allows all the non-GFE freedom fighters to remain connected to their Army 365 email. Just don’t tell your chain of command. Otherwise they will start passive-aggressively emailing you at night expecting a quick response. Middle management corporate America does the same thing, but you don’t have to worry about getting stuck on staff duty.

And, oh, this program is entirely optional, so don’t burn up a spare barrel reading this article if you are not interested in enhancing your productivity.

Introduction to the Hypori Army BYOD Program

Are you ready to join an exclusive team that will bring you the cutting-edge technology of today? Did that sentence sound like a sound bite from a sales pitch from 2015? Good! The Hypori Army ‘Bring Your own Device’ (BYOD) Program allows you to join their Remote Capability Workforce Program (RCWP) and use the Hypori Halo app. By joining the program, participants can access A365, MS Teams, and NIPRNet websites with the help of the mobile client. The Hypori Army BYOD Program is the perfect opportunity to lean forward in the proverbial technological foxhole to gain increased situational awareness. It’s easy to stay connected and keep up with your team. With the help of the Hypori Halo application, users can access the most advanced tools available while on the go. Even better, you can use a smartphone and a tablet to access all the essentials for working remotely. The Hypori Army BYOD Program provides an unparalleled opportunity for soldiers to participate in the RCWP; you’ll finally join the 21st Century and become part of a team with access to the best technology.

What Should I Tell My S6?

Not a word. A good S6 already pushed this information out to the organization and assisted in getting those interested in the program on-boarded. And that tech-warrior recommended that not everyone should need to be part of the program. What a great American, saving one Squad Leader and Company XO at a time! A decent S6 has done their homework and stands ready to assist. A bad S6 doesn’t know this is a thing, but they also haven’t moved the organization to Army 365 SharePoint. All jokes aside, this program is an individual effort that benefits anyone who needs access to A365 but does not have a GFE. Not only will you be able to work remotely, but you’ll be able to stay connected with the most advanced tools for communication and collaboration. It’s the perfect way to remain informed and stay connected while on the go.

What Are the Benefits of Joining the Hypori Army BYOD Program?

Furthermore, with the program, personnel can access the A365 suite of products, and who doesn’t love to jump on an MS Team call from their “office.” This program allows more personnel the flexibility to collaborate with other personnel, share ideas, and communicate in real time from anywhere in the world.

Setting Up the Army BYOD App

The Army BYOD App is the simplest and most secure way to access your A365, MS Teams, and NIPRNet websites while on the go. Here’s a step-by-step guide to downloading and setting up the Hyper Halo application:

  1. Search for ‘Army MobileConnect Authenticator’ in the Google Play Store or App Store and download the application. Yeah, yeah, one more authenticator app on your phone.
  2. Configure the Army MobileConnect Authenticator.
  3. Search for ‘Hypori’ in the Google Play Store or App Store and download the application.
  4. Configure the Hypori Client using the directions in your onboarding email.
