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.
Open User Menu
In the Dashboard, tap the User Menu icon.
Tap your Profile icon.
Open Overflow Menu
Tap the Options icon.
Choose Profile Picture
To take a new photo with your camera, tap the Take a New Photo link . To add an existing photo from your camera gallery, tap the Choose from Gallery link .
If you don't want to use a profile picture, tap the Set to Default link .
Note: Changing your profile picture in the app will also change the profile picture in your browser version of Canvas.
