HID Global regularly updates their Asure ID Software version 7. We encourage users to keep up with these updates to take advantage of new features and prevent problems. The current version of Asure ID can always be downloaded online directly from HID. It is available as a free update for currently licensed users of Asure ID 2009 and Asure ID 7.x. Users of Asure ID 5.x, should contact us for special upgrade pricing.
For help installing the update and accessing new shortcuts and functionalities, Asure ID also regularly updates the Asure ID User Guide. It is also available as a free download directly from the HID Global website.
The most recent program updates target increased functionality and support for HID’s ever-expanding access-control systems.
Asure ID Software Recent Release Highlights:
- HID has updated the toolbar and application sidebar to more closely mirror the look and feel of recent Windows releases. This redesign makes learning and using Asure ID easier and more intuitive.
- Enhancements to accommodate encoding of iClass SE proximity/access credentials.
- Data entry and management are enhanced, allowing users to save font sizes and font types for both table and record views, further increasing customization options.
- HID has introduced several keystroke enhancements to simplify data entry, including the ability to use the “shift-key” to highlight multiple records at once for group action.
- Beginning with Asure ID 7.7, the program retains the most recent photo location and cropped size. Most users find this change makes it easier to edit photographs and quickly produce photo IDs.
- Finally, HID has added a quick filter feature that allows users to specify the order of entries.
As a result of these updates, data-entry is smoother and the software allows for better management of databases and data records.
Most notably, as HID expands their ecosystem to include embedded and standalone iClass SE Encoders, they continue to update Asure ID, in part to facilitate access-control system integration. As Asure ID 7.7, users can take advantage of iClass SE Encoders, optionally embedded within Fargo ID printers. This includes enabling automatic registration of finished card data to compatible access-control programs.

A question we often receive in our customer support department is “What is the default user-ID & password for HID Global’s Asure ID card design and printing software?”
In order to access Asure ID, you must provide a user-ID & password each time you use the program. When it is first installed, a default user-ID & password combination for Asure ID is created. It is best-practice to replace these default values with your own, secure user-ID & password. If you want to secure any personal identification data that appears on your ID-cards, this is particularly important.
In all but Asure ID’s entry-level Solo Edition, you can create separate user-IDs for an administrator user-ID and for non-administrator users. (Solo Edition does not support multiple user-IDs.)
If you have the Exchange Edition of Asure ID, you can also use Microsoft Active Directory / LDAP and implement single sign-on capabilities.
Asure ID Default User-ID & Password:
User Name*= admin
(*You should input values exactly as they appear–they are case sensitive.)

The various versions of id card software by Asure sometimes is a complex process to wade through. It is important to consider what requirements the current organization needs in their id card uses as well as what might be required out of the id card in a couple of years. This software will last for some time and will need to encompass the abilities of id card printing for the foreseeable future.
One way to make sure that you make the best decision in selecting the Asure ID software version is to review the features of each product to see if your current and possibily future requirements may be defined and the correct software version selected.
The inital review may be best found by looking at the product selection guide that Asure ID makers have put together indicating the capabilities of each software version. Once that is reviewed, usually the decision can be narrowed into about what is needed. At that point, a specialist from an id card company can confirm the decision and provide the best possible options for smooth id card making.
