How to find a game PIN
Last Updated a year ago

When you go to, or open our mobile app and tap the Enter PIN button, you see a field that requires a Game PIN.


A game PIN is a temporary, unique code that identifies which game you want to join. This PIN is generated when someone presents a live kahoot or assigns a kahoot.

Where can I find a game PIN?

You need to receive it from the host of the game.

Game PINs are unique to each kahoot session. They are generated once a kahoot has been launched, and used at or in our app so that learners can join a host’s kahoot.

As a participant of a game, you can't generate a PIN. You must be given a PIN by someone that's hosting a game.

If you want to play individually, you don't need a PIN, you can follow the steps from this article.

I have a PIN already, how do I join a game?

  1. Open your device’s web browser and go to, or open our mobile app and tap “Enter PIN”.
  2. Enter a game PIN.
  3. If “player identifier” is enabled by the host, provide the requested identifier.
  4. If “friendly nickname generator” is enabled by the host, click or tap the “spin” button to choose a random nickname. If it’s disabled, type a nickname of your choice.

Here are more details on joining kahoots and alternative ways of accessing a game.
