This article describes how a teacher can generate a login backup code for a student who has forgotten their Clever password.

A login backup code allows a student to access their Clever Portal without knowing their password. 

Generating the Backup Code

To generate a student backup code from your Clever Portal:

  1. On the right side of your Clever Portal, click Help a Student:

  2. Select the student you wish to help from the drop-down menu:

  3. You see a six-digit backup code that you can pass along securely to your student. This code will expire in 20 minutes. Learn how a student can use this backup code to access Clever below.

How a Student Uses the Backup Code

Once a student has their login backup code, they can:

  1. Go to your district's Clever Portal login page.
  2. Click the Get help signing in! link, and then click Log in with a Backup Code.
  3. Enter their login backup code on the next screen, and click Log in. This logs them into their Clever account!
