Some features are restricted or modified on child accounts to help protect a child’s privacy. You can learn more about these restrictions here. A few of the most notable differences are:
- Any parent who creates a child account becomes the child’s permanent coach.
- A child cannot enter certain information (e.g., email, full name) in their profile, nor can they make their profile public.
- A parent account has the option of disabling other coaches from gaining access to the child’s Khan Academy progress information.
- A parent manages the child’s password and can change it at any time for any reason.
- A child cannot post public messages in discussion forums.
Child account maintenance is reserved solely for the use by a parent or legal guardian of a child. Violation of this policy may result in deletion of the account entirely.
Accounts created by logging in through Google Apps for Education have access to all of the site's features.
