Seesaw App FAQ for Families and Students

What has changed with the Seesaw app? 
Launched in Summer 2022, Seesaw now has one streamlined app for all! The Seesaw app is a single app for teachers, students, and families to make learning experiences and communication simple!

Our family has multiple Seesaw users on one device. How can we log in to multiple Seesaw accounts from a shared device?

At this time, users will need to sign in/out of their account between sessions. We will be releasing an Account Switching feature that will make switching between accounts much easier. 

As a workaround until then, Families can still download the Seesaw Family App at the link below, which will allow you to switch accounts more easily.

Another workaround for desktop users, is to have each user active in a different browser (Chrome, Firefox, Edge). Users on a mobile device will need to use the Seesaw app.

What app should new students and family members look for?
Search the Apple App Store or Google Play Store for “Seesaw”. 

If I already have the Seesaw Class app installed, do I need to do anything?
Your app will be automatically updated in mid-July 2022 to have the new app version and all of the new features.

If I already have the Seesaw Family app installed, do I need to do anything?
Your app will continue to receive updates until 2023, but we recommend downloading the new “Seesaw” app to take advantage of new features like Account Switching.

I’m concerned about the security of having multiple accounts signed in on the same device.
Our account switching feature is designed to make it easier to switch between accounts when multiple people share the same device. If you don’t want someone else who is sharing your device to be able to switch to your account, you can sign out between sessions. We will be releasing an Account Switching feature soon that will make switching between accounts much easier.
