MFA built for K-12 , no device needed

Classroom MFA creates a second layer of security for Clever without a second device.

Secure authentication for the classroom

Classroom MFA creates a second layer of protection for all applications in Clever, plus Google Workspace and Chromebook logins. It prevents unauthorized access into accounts with access to sensitive data, and meets common requirements for cybersecurity insurance policies.

No phone? No problem.

Use login pictures or Clever Badges – an encrypted, physical passcode – for classroom-friendly MFA methods.

Fast, simple rollout

Intuitive design makes setup and rollout a snap. Create unique policies by selecting appropriate MFA methods, choosing the enforcement date, and monitoring progress right from your dashboard.

Controls you need

Manage your MFA policies, troubleshoot, and monitor enrollment in your dashboard. Plus, prevent help desk tickets with teacher troubleshooting tools to unblock access issues directly in the classroom.

Create a second layer of security for Clever

Multi-factor authentication is critical to protecting and securing accounts. Existing MFA solutions aren’t designed for schools – they’re expensive, require access to additional devices, and can distract students from learning. Classroom MFA by Clever makes enterprise-grade security possible for the classroom.
Select users
Select MFA-assigned users, MFA methods, and frequency of re-authentication.
Choose authentication methods
Pair your existing Clever SSO Badge with login pictures as a second factor for young students. Older students, teachers, or staff, can use their existing login methods with a Clever MFA Badge as the second factor. Traditional factors are also available.
Control networks and MFA frequency
Designate safe networks and reauthentication frequency. If a user is in a school setting, you can decrease enforcement to every 7 or 30 days.
Print Clever Badges and go
Unlike other MFA solutions, Clever doesn’t require you to install new applications or program secondary devices. Once users set up their method, they simply download the badge after MFA and login. Best of all, you can replace and reprint Clever Badges for free if they are misplaced or lost.

The rising numbers of cyberattacks on students nationwide highlighted the need for an effective MFA solution that protected our students. An attack would be extremely costly for us. The cost-effective MFA solution from Clever significantly reduces the risk of cybercriminals exploiting our students.
