How do students and staff access EP using Microsoft Login

Teachers, students and EP for Home users on Education Perfect now have the option to log in to their EP account using their Microsoft account.

To use the Log in with Microsoft option:

  • You'll need to have an existing Microsoft account through your school or workplace, or a personal Microsoft account.
  • The email address on your EP account needs to match the one linked to your Microsoft account.

You are still able to sign in using a username and password or via Single Sign-On (SSO) as usual. The Microsoft login is entirely optional. 

Logging in

From the EP login page, click Log in with Microsoft
