Important notes for services:

  • Hub 2 will be available to use from Friday, April 17 
  • Services will need to refresh the Hub after the release
  • Services will need to log in again after the release
  • Hub2 has a switcher to allow users to log in with either phone and pin, or their email and password
  • Parents and Educators will now need to navigate to Xplor ID (Home Web, Playground Web, or directly to https://login.myxplor.com) to configure phone numbers and pins for Hub login.

Introducing Xplor ID

Xplor ID allows one email and password (or phone and pin) for parents, educators and hub guests to log into our products. 

Users navigate through the simple flow with handy help instructions to merge together all of their parent, educator and Hub Guest profiles across any number of services and providers in Home to unify them under one set of shared credentials.

That means the next time that they visit the Hub, Home Web, or Playground Web, users can simply log in with the same credentials and choose from their many roles from there.
