Security for enterprises

Kahoot! uses end-to-end, industry-standard encryption in transit to end-users and internally between data centers and internal/external services. Data is always encrypted at rest.

We use multiple backup strategies for various parts of the platform. Backups are always encrypted and stored at a different site. Backups are kept for up to six months.

Our public certificates are obtained from an acknowledged certification authority, and we support TLS 1.2 or higher. What’s more, the Kahoot! platform is SOC2 Type 2 compliant. We also run continuous penetration tests with an external party. A yearly report is available for enterprise customers.

You do not need to download anything to use Kahoot!, as it is a stand-alone website with no inbound connections. No installs, plugins, and integrations with internal systems are required to use Kahoot!. Optional integrations with Microsoft Teams and Zoom are available.

The Kahoot! platform is accessed from kahoot.com, while participants with no account can join games at kahoot.it. For an enhanced user experience, we recommend downloading the Kahoot! app on iOS or Android.

Kahoot! follows a number of policies to implement a safe and secure experience for users of all ages and to comply with relevant rules and regulations. Policies are reviewed on an annual basis to ensure they are kept up to date, and changes are approved by senior management.
