Frequently asked questions


The outbreak of COVID-19 has caused many educational institutions to close temporarily and rely on distance learning. To help educators conduct distance learning, we’re providing free access to Kahoot! Premium to any educator who has to conduct all lessons online because their school is closed due to coronavirus.

Contact us to activate Kahoot! Premium

If your school is closed and all lessons are conducted online due to coronavirus, please contact us via this form to access Kahoot! Premium for free.

Frequently asked questions

How is Premium different from a free Kahoot! subscription?

Kahoot! Premium is an advanced plan for schools that allows educators to collaborate on learning content, share kahoots in a school’s team space, use all our advanced question types, access detailed reports and easily share them for formative assessment. Download our PDF guide on getting started with Premium for school collaboration.

Several teachers in my school are interested in this offer. What do we do?

We recommend you decide which of you will function as the Kahoot! admin – and that person should be the one who submits the above contact form. For example, it can be someone from the IT department of your school. As an admin, you will be able to decide how many licenses are needed for your school/department/district, add them to your subscription for free, and invite other teachers.

How do I invite other teachers?

With Kahoot! Premium, educators can collaborate with each other outside of school walls. After submitting the contact form and receiving free access, you can add as many teachers as you need for free. You can either invite other teachers manually or use a universal license key if you’re adding many at the same time. Please disregard any message that displays a price. You will not be charged.

Download our PDF guide for more detailed instructions on each of these methods.

Do I have to pay for other teachers I invite?

No. It’s free to add any teacher who has to conduct all lessons online as their school is closed due to coronavirus. When inviting them, you might come across a pop up which asks you to confirm a price. Please disregard this message, as you are not providing any billing information to us, and you are not tying yourself to purchase later when this free subscription expires.

I don’t have a Kahoot! account yet. What do I do?

Click here to start your sign up process. You’ll be asked to create an account before you can claim the offer.

I already have a Pro subscription, can I get a refund and get this new plan?

Contact us and we’ll get you set up. We won’t refund your Pro subscription but the upgrade to Premium will be free of charge.

How long will the free subscription last?

You can access Kahoot! Premium for free until September 30, 2020.

What happens when my school reopens?

Unless you provide billing info before the trial ends, your account will return to free access when your school reopens. Personal kahoots can still be used, though you won’t be able to edit them if they contain premium features. Team kahoots won’t be deleted, though you won’t have access to the team space.
