DataCamp System Requirements

Desktops & Laptops:

For the optimal DataCamp experience on a desktop or laptop, we support major releases of the following browsers:

  • Google Chrome
  • Mozilla Firefox
  • Microsoft Edge
  • Safari

Each time a new browser version is released, we begin supporting that version.

We recommend disabling extensions and ad blockers as they can interrupt your access to DataCamp or DataCamp features, as this is the most common cause of video interference in DataCamp.

For Business Networks & VPNs:

If you use a business or academic network or VPN and experience issues with specific courses or frequent disconnections, please inform your IT/network admin and share this article to ensure that your network meets DataCamp's System Requirements.

Virtual Machines

In addition to a strong internet connection, DataCamp recommends that you only have one workbook instance opened at a time for courses like Introduction to Power BI and Introduction to Tableau.
Servers for DataCamp's VM courses are currently located in the USA. If you are accessing the course from a country that is geographically distant from the USA, you may experience latency issues. This may also apply if you are using a VPN, especially one that routes through another country.


DataCamp offers courses with Google Sheets and Excel that may require additional network configuration.

For Google Sheets, you will need access to

For Excel, you may encounter Sharepoint issues, at which point you will need to enable cross-site tracking, especially if you are using Safari.

  • *

For Safari, go to Preferences…>Privacy, where you can uncheck Prevent cross-site tracking.

Note: For Android and iOS mobile devices, DataCamp's mobile content is available via Safari and Chrome browsers
