The 10 digit phone number is the shortest, yet completely unique personal identifier, and therefore fast and easy to use for check-in. Using something like ‘last name’ would make for a time-consuming and confusing check-in experience by having to sort through multiple records of people with common names.

KidCheck also offers an optional Check-In PIN providing an additional layer of security for those interested. Parents and guardians have the option to create and use a unique PIN at check-in, along with their 10 digit phone number.

In addition to guardians entering a 10 digit phone number, our barcoded keytags are another great option for check-in. They are similar to those used by grocery stores and gyms, and are available to purchase in the KidCheck Store. Keytags help the check-in process to be as streamlined and efficient as possible.
