Get started with Surface Hub 3

New installs

If you have a Surface Hub 2S, you can upgrade to the new experience via the Surface Hub 3 Pack. See Install and manage Surface Hub 3 Pack to learn more.

IT management of Surface Hub 3

In addition to Microsoft Intune and third-party MDM providers, IT admins can manage Surface Hub 3 via the Microsoft Teams admin center and use tools like Microsoft Configuration Manager, third-party OMA-DM-based management tools, and Windows Group Policy.

Security considerations

Depending on your organization's security posture, you may wish to implement additional security measures beyond the default experience of running Microsoft Teams Rooms on Windows in a locked-down state. This includes changing the default Administrator password (factory set to sfb), adding a UEFI password, and implementing appropriate physical security measures. To learn more, see Surface Hub 3 security best practices.
