On October 23, 2023, Google Workspace for Education changes are going into effect that may impact you and your students on CodeHS.

What's Changing?

Google has made updates so that students under 18 won't be able to access third-party apps that haven’t been approved by your school. This means that apps like CodeHS may be blocked for use by default, which could impact your students’ ability to log into and use CodeHS, especially if students log in with Google Classroom or Google Single Sign-On (SSO). This has already impacted some districts, and it will go into effect for others on October 23, 2023.

What Do CodeHS Users Need To Do?

To be sure you and your students can sign in and use CodeHS, please share this with your school IT administrator and ask them to set up Trusted Access for CodeHS in the Google Admin console before October 23, 2023.

The steps to approve third party apps through your Google Admin console can be found below. Full instructions can also be found here.

  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console using an administrator account.

  2. Get started by going to the intro page of the guided experience.

  3. Click Continue to view the first step, Confirm settings for unconfigured third-party apps.

  4. From here, administrators can select to enable select 3rd party apps with Google sign-in. To learn more, visit this help article from Google.

You can learn more about the CodeHS data and privacy policies at CodeHS Privacy and Terms of Use.


Reach out to the CodeHS Team at if you have questions.

Note: If you don’t use Google Classroom or Google SSO to login to CodeHS, this should not impact you or your students.
