For best security practices, some districts require a secure PIN for older students to log in to Clever when using a Badge. Clever requires a PIN for all students grades 7 and above that log in using a Badge. A district can choose to adjust this setting to require PINs for Badges beginning at an earlier grade. This can be done from the Clever district dashboard > Badges > Settings page.
Setting Badge PINs
To set a PIN, students will navigate to clever.com/badges, hold their Badge up to the camera, and then be authenticated to the page displayed below.
The first time a student uses a PIN-enabled Badge, they will see the screen below prompting them to set a PIN.
On this screen, the student will enter their new PIN twice and then be signed in to Clever! After this initial setup, your students will be able to log into Clever using their Badge and their PIN.
