How do you make an account that’s not a school account?

question
resolved

#1

My friend is trying to make a Hopscotch according unit, but the only option for her is to get a school account. When I made an account, this did not happen. Could anyone help me make my friend a regular, non-subscription account?


#2

Is she on an iPhone? Because if you are on an iPad you can simply tap Skip and you are in a guest account. From there you can tap the gear icon and tap Sign Up.


#3

No, she’s on an iPad. Yeah, that is what usually happens, but I tried to make an account for her and the same thing happened.


#4

Hmmmm… let me do some testing.

Making An Account

Tap “Get Started.”


Tap “Go to school version.”


Tap “I’m a student on my school iPad.”


Tap “My teacher didn’t give me a login.”


Choose to either create or play projects.


Tap the gear icon in the corner of your guest profile, and tap “Sign Up.”


Enter a username, password, and email. Then tap “Continue.” You should have an account.

I have bookmarked this, thank you Tankt!


#8

Thank you so much!


#9

Hopscotch should have an option for those who aren’t teachers or students

Like, “I’m at home and I want to use Hopscotch”


#10

I agree. It used to be that way. It would avoid confusion.


#11

Okay, now that my friend has an account, she has limited projects. I saw this on her account. I’m just wondering why this is. Now you have to get a subscription to have more than 15 projects!


#12

Yeah.
It’s sad but that exists because THT needs a way to make money to keep this going.


#13

Oh. So now only if you had an account before that was set in place you can exceed the limit?


#14

Yeah.
