Canvas-Supported Browsers

Because it’s built using web standards, Canvas runs on Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android, or any other device with a modern web browser.

Supported Browsers

Canvas supports the current and first previous major releases of the many current web browsers. Please see the full list available on the Canvas Community for more information.

We highly recommend updating to the most current version of your preferred browser. Most browsers update automatically, but if yours does not, it will notify you if there is a new version available.

Some supported browsers may still produce a banner stating Your browser does not meet the minimum requirements for Canvas. If you have upgraded your browser but you are still seeing the warning banner, try logging out of Canvas and deleting your browser cookies.

Browser Updates

If your browser does not update automatically, you can download your preferred browser in the browser’s download page:

Browser Plugins and Extensions

Some browser plugins or extensions may conflict with Canvas and affect functionality. If you experience behavior that does not allow you to view or participate in Canvas courses, please ensure you have disabled any extensions or plugins that interact directly with your web browser.

For troubleshooting, consider logging in to Canvas using an incognito or private browser window, which will provide a browser session without any prior browsing or search history, associated browser cookies, or other factors that may interfere with the browser. If you are able to view and participate in Canvas using an incognito or private browser window, the behavior you are experiencing is likely related to the browser and not Canvas.

Canvas on Mobile Devices

Canvas is not officially supported on mobile browsers. We recommend using Canvas mobile applications for an improved user experience.
