There are two kinds of codes you will come across when it comes to accessing your photos: access codes and verification codes. You might encounter both during your PhotoDay experience, but what exactly is the difference between them?

Access Codes

An access code is essentially the password to your photo gallery. It is set by the photographer, and given out exclusively to the school, organization, and parents of the subjects of the photos. To gain access to a gallery, a customer can type in the given access code at on either a computer or mobile phone web browser.

Or, if on mobile, they can text the access code to 90738, where we will immediately text back with a direct link to the gallery itself. The link will automatically open their phone's web browser and direct the customer to their photos.

Verification Codes

Verification codes are used to confirm that it’s really you that’s about to log into your PhotoDay account and make purchases. It’s an extra security measure just to make sure you and your financial information are protected. PhotoDay associates your account with your phone number, so when you attempt to view your shopping cart while being logged out, we might prompt you to enter a verification code to help identify you.

We’ll send it via text message…

After which you can enter it on the verification code screen. Once you’ve done that, you will be able to view your cart, customize your items, and finally purchase your photos!
