We are committed to security and protecting data. Security is not a new thing and it is not my goal to describe it in this post. If you are interested to learn more, please navigate to our Instructure Security page.

Effective 1 March 2021, we will no longer enable http traffic for any authentication providers in all Canvas mobile apps. This update means we’ll only allow communication over https protocol.

If instructors in your institution are using embedded content that is not secure, it cannot be viewed in the mobile apps. Please confirm any external content embedded within Canvas is hosted on a secure site.
