School systems can choose which authentication method(s) they want to use to provision staff, teachers, and students into ClassLink LaunchPad. Your choices include these common authentication methods, among others:
ClassLink supports multi-factor authentication for users based on their ClassLink profile. Once you’ve chosen your authentication method, you can choose from several second-factor options, including:
Students and staff can use ClassLink Verify to generate verification codes to use in addition to a ClassLink password for added security. (Additional authenticators such as Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator, Authy, or LastPass are also supported).
Members of your school system can also add their mobile phone numbers into their ClassLink security settings. Each time they log in to ClassLink, they will receive an SMS text message with their second-factor validation code.
School systems can also purchase physical devices, such as a YubiKey. Once the device is registered in ClassLink’s security settings, students and staff can insert the device into the appropriate USB port during authentication.
Typing in a username and password or code may not work for all your students and staff, so in addition to multiple authentication methods, ClassLink offers easy login options, including QuickCard and Faces. Watch the videos below to learn what’s available for some of your younger students or those with disabilities.
Assign the 6 Digit PIN option to students and staff, and they’ll be asked to create a 6-digit unique personal identification number (PIN). Each time they log in to ClassLink, they’ll be prompted to enter their PIN.
Younger students can also use an image as their second authentication factor. When you assign this MFA option, students are prompted to click their pre-selected image each time they log in to ClassLink.
Typing in a username and password or code may not work for all your students and staff, so in addition to multiple authentication methods, ClassLink also offers two easy login options, QuickCards and Faces, to support younger students or those with disabilities.
