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 install an app on their mobile devices, such as Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator, Authy, or LastPass, and connect their ClassLink account to the app by scanning a QR code. Then, each time someone logs in to ClassLink, they will be asked for their second-factor authentication through the mobile authenticator app.
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.
