The same button can be displayed if you access Kahoot via your mobile app version and click on the “Enter PIN” button. After that, you will be able to see a field that prompts you to enter a “game PIN”. Be aware that a Kahoot game PIN is a unique, temporary code that verifies and identifies which game you would like to join. The Kahoot game PIN is generated when the host starts a live game or when someone assigns a challenge.
Kahoot Game PINs are unique per Kahoot gameplay session. PINs are generally generated once a Kahoot has been started, and used at Kahoot.it website so that learners or players are enabled to join a host’s Kahoot session. To find a Kahoot game PIN, you will need to be at a location where the host is launching a Kahoot game. The screen that the leader has launched the Kahoot on should be insight for you to view the game PIN. Note that, as a participant in gameplay, you cannot generate a game PIN. You will be given a PIN by someone, a teacher or another person, who is hosting a game.
