How do I make a Kahoot! account?

Kahoot! accounts are free. So if you'd like to get started, go to and click "sign up for free!" in the top nav bar. We will ask you for some basic info that will take less than a minute to provide.

Here are the steps in the registration process:

Step 1: How do you want to use Kahoot!?

This helps us understand who's using our platform and how. We're striving to build unique experiences tailored for each group. For the moment, "student" is the only role that may get a different experience, which you can read about here.

Step 2: How do you want to sign in?

You can tie your Kahoot! account to your Google email account, Microsoft email account, or sign up with any other valid email account of yours. This determines how you’ll need to sign in. You cannot switch your sign-in method after your account is created.

If you choose "Sign up with Google" or “Sign up with Microsoft”, you will need to sign in with the corresponding SSO (single-sign-on) button to sign in.

If you choose “Sign up with email”, you’ll need to manually enter your username or email along with your password every time you sign in. Your email is required for password resets. Please DO NOT enter a fake or “internal-only” email. If you can't receive a message from, you won't be able to reset your password. We cannot verify you as the rightful account owner unless you communicate with us using the email on file.
  • Students under 13 in the U.S. (under 16 elsewhere) must use their email (not username) to sign in.

Step 3: Your account details

Depending on what you specify on steps 1 and 2, you'll be asked for some additional details.

Date of Birth
This will help us ensure kiddos are properly protected in accordance with our Child Privacy Policy. Please ensure this is accurate, as falsifying info may result in complications in getting help from us if for any reason you're unable access our services. If you're a parent or teacher creating an account for a child to use, it's recommended you enter the child's birthdate so that we set the right access level for them.

School, University, Company, or Organization
At this moment, the info you provide in this field does not affect the functionality you experience on the platform. In the future, we hope to provide tailored experiences depending on the type of your organization. Stay tuned!.

This will be your Kahoot! alias. You can create & share games with others on our platform. Your username is how people can find any of your content. So make sure you pick something easy to remember and presentable! Keep in mind that usernames must be 6-20 characters, numbers, letters, underscores only.

Your password (along with username) will be what you sign in with. Passwords must be between 6 and 20 characters long. Make sure it’s a strong one, and remember - passwords should NEVER be shared with anyone, including us!
