Frequently asked questions

  • What will my child learn with a Tynker subscription?

    Tynker courses teach critical 21st century skills, including computer programming, critical thinking, and problem solving. Students learn how to logically sequence events, create playable games, tell good stories, and model real situations. They also learn computational thinking by developing algorithmic and design thinking abilities. After learning the fundamentals, kids can transition to JavaScript within the Tynker learning system.

  • Can my children share a single account?

    Multiple kids cannot share the same account, because they will overwrite each other’s work. We offer discounts when you add additional children to our Yearly and Lifetime plans.

  • Do you offer discounts for multiple children?

    Yes. Check out our Family Yearly and Lifetime plans. With up to 4 accounts, everyone can enjoy learning to code together.

  • How do I know my child is learning?

    Tynker automatically tracks your child’s achievements as they work through lessons and activities. From your Parent Dashboard, you can view your children’s progress through the courses, the projects they’ve created, and the concepts they’ve learned. You can even share projects with your friends and family.

  • Will my subscription renew automatically?

    Yes, your subscription will renew automatically by default. After purchasing, you can turn off recurring billing and edit any other payment information from your Tynker parent dashboard.

  • How do I turn off auto-renewal for my subscription?

    If you purchased the subscription from our website, you can cancel a plan by turning off automatic renewal in settings via your Parent Dashboard. Click “Manage” next to each child and select “cancel.” This will remove auto-renewal.

    If you purchased the subscription through our iPad app, you need to cancel through the iPad general settings. Open up the settings for the iPad and scroll down until you see iTunes & App Store. Then, select the Apple ID that you used to sign up for the subscription. When you get the pop up, select View Apple ID. Scroll down until you see Subscriptions and click on Subscriptions. Find Tynker and select Cancel.

  • What devices are Tynker courses supported on?

    You can access Tynker courses from any computer with a modern browser and Internet connection. Some courses are also available on the Tynker iPad app. To access courses from the iPad app, sign in to your account.

  • What is the difference between the web subscription and iPad subscription?

    The iPad subscription gives you access to our 16 iPad courses; the web subscription gives you access to over 40 online courses iincluding Python, JavaScript and a private Minecraft server.

  • What are the technical requirements for Minecraft modding?

    We currently support two versions of Minecraft – Minecraft (formerly known as Pocket Edition or Windows 10 Edition) and Minecraft: Java Edition. To use mobs, skins, blocks, and Add-Ons for Minecraft, you must install Minecraft on either your computer or your mobile device, download the creation onto the device, and import it into Minecraft.

    To deploy mods, skins, and resource packs for Minecraft: Java Edition made with Tynker, you must have purchased a Minecraft account from Mojang and installed Minecraft: Java Edition on your desktop or laptop computer. You will need to connect to our Tynker server and your private world to see your creations.]

  • How much time will my child have on their Minecraft private server?

    Your child will have unlimited time to make mods and complete courses on Tynker, but their time to test out their creations on a private Minecraft server is limited. If you do not have a Tynker account, your child will have 30 minutes/month. With a free Tynker account, this increases to 60 minutes/month. Subscribers with an annual or quarterly plan get 480 minutes/month, and subscribers with a Lifetime plan get 960 minutes/month.

  • Can I give a subscription as a gift?

    Yes, you can go here to gift a one-year or Lifetime subscription to Tynker. You will be charged the entire amount up front and the subscription will not renew.

  • Do you have a satisfaction guarantee?
