Turnitin have announced an update to their iPad app. They have added a mandatory pin code entry for the app to help secure sensitive student data and protect grades and submissions.
After updating the app on your iPad, you’ll be asked to enter a 4 digit passcode.
You will be asked for the passcode:
- Each time you open the app,
- and if the app has been idle for 5 minutes.
Also be aware that if you enter your passcode incorrectly 3 times you’ll be logged out of the app and unlinked from the assignment submissions you have on the app. You’ll need to log in again with your Turnitin username and password to regain access. Details on the Turnitin blog.
