How do I choose a profile picture in the Canvas Student app on my Android device?
If your institution allows profile pictures, you can add a profile picture on the mobile app.
Changing your profile picture in the app will also change the profile picture in your browser version of Canvas.
The images in this lesson are shown for a phone display, but unless otherwise noted, tablet displays mirror the same steps.
Note: If you cannot add a profile picture, your institution has restricted this feature.
