Sometimes students will use the class code login option and either accidentally or intentionally log in as another student. This can be prevented in a couple ways. 

Using Picture or Text Passwords

One solution is to set up Picture or Text Passwords for your students. We will automatically generate a unique picture for each student that they can use as their "password" (great for pre-readers). If you prefer a text password, select the option for text password and students can use their Parent Code as a password to log into their profile.

Both password options are available to all schools on one of our Kodable School Plans. Find out more information about passwords here.
