Hi @Billybob999 ...

I don't think you have anything to worry about, to be honest.  When a profile picture is reported in Canvas, your school's local Canvas administrator can review the reported image and then either reject it or approve it.  Here is a Guide for administrators so you can see how this works: How do I manage profile pictures for users in an account?.

I hope this will help a bit.  Let Community members know if you have any other questions about this...thanks!  Take care, stay safe, and be well.


the same thing happened to me accidentally, would my instructor or local Canvas administrator for my school know that I did it? Or am I kept anonymous 

Hello there, @kyleeee_2k20 ...

I am a Canvas administrator at our Technical College, and I cannot find anything within our admin pages of Canvas that would identify who reported someone's profile picture.  I can only see that someone reported another person's profile picture for our review.  I do not know who the reporter would have been.  This is also confirmed in this Canvas admin Guide: How do I manage profile pictures for users in an a... - Canvas Community.  As you can see from the screen shots, it shows the admin the name of the person that was reported, but it does not show *who* reported it.

I hope this will be of some help to you.  Take care, stay safe, and be well.
