Android, Android Apps

Are you a parent using the Canvas Parent app on your Android device? Do you have multiple children using the app and want to switch between their accounts easily?

Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! In this tutorial, we will guide you on how to switch to another account in the Canvas Parent app on your Android device.

Step 1: Launch the Canvas Parent app on your Android device. Once it launches successfully, you will be taken to the dashboard where you can see all your children’s accounts that are linked to your Canvas Parent account.

Step 2: To switch to another account, tap on the three horizontal lines (also known as hamburger icon) in the top-left corner of the screen. This will open up a menu with various options.

Step 3: Scroll down until you find an option that says “Switch Student”. Tap on it.

Step 4: Once you tap “Switch Student”, a list of all your linked students’ accounts will appear. Select the student account that you want to switch to by tapping on their name.

Step 5: After selecting the student account, wait for a few seconds for the app to load their information. Once loaded, you will be redirected to their dashboard and can access all their classes and course materials.

– If you have multiple children using different devices with their own Canvas accounts, ensure that each device has its own separate Canvas Parent app installed and is linked with its respective child’s account. – If you don’t see an option for “Switch Student” in your menu, then it’s possible that only one student is linked with your Canvas Parent account.

Check with your child or their school administrator if there are any issues linking multiple students’ accounts. – If you’re still facing issues switching between accounts or need further assistance, contact the Canvas support team for help.


Switching to another account in the Canvas Parent app on your Android device is a simple and easy process. By following the above steps, you can quickly switch between your children’s accounts and keep track of their academic progress without any hassle. With proper use of the app, you can stay informed and up-to-date with everything happening in their school courses.
