What are Clever Badges?
Clever Badges are only available for students at this time. Badges are perfect for students who have trouble typing or remembering complex passwords - especially younger learners. Badges allow students to hold up a physical badge to their device's webcam to get logged in, instead of typing in usernames and passwords. Teachers get more time to teach, and students get more time to learn!
If the administrators on your district's Clever account have enabled Badges there are several ways that you can manage Clever Badges as a teacher. You can print, regenerate, and void Badges for individual students or whole classes

Do all students have Badges?
Not all students have access to Badges. Your district's administrators can choose which users at your district have access to Badges. If your student does not have access to a Clever Badge and they will need one, please reach out to your district's tech support contact.
How do Clever Badges work?
- Students navigate to www.clever.com/badges and click “Allow” in the browser prompt to give Clever access to their camera.
- The webcam will activate and students should hold their Badge up to the camera. Once the code is scanned the screen border will flash green.
- Students will then be redirected to their Clever Portal.
Can teachers & staff log in using Clever Badges?
No, Clever Badges only supports students at this time.
Devices without cameras
If a student does not have access to a device with a camera, they can log in using the district's normal login method. (e.g. Log in with Google, Log in with Active Directory, Log in with Clever). If you require assistance with identifying their username and password for one of these login methods, please reach out to your district's tech support contact.
