Why can't teachers view student email addresses?


In order to protect the privacy of students, we do not store student email addresses in a retrievable format whenever they create an account on Code.org. Instead, we immediately create and store only a one-way hashed version of the email address (which cannot be converted back into the original address), and use it only for the purposes of login, account management, and password recovery. 

As we cannot retrieve student email addresses in plaintext, it is not possible for us to display student email addresses to teachers. You can learn more about how we protect student privacy in our privacy policy.
