Online support tips
Search the Help Center
Our main goal at Canary support is to educate our customers on our products.
Ask a question in our Help Center search bar to see if an article answers your question. Canary support has worked very hard putting together comprehensive guides to troubleshooting. We’ve identified the most common contributors to customer questions, and have outlined resolutions in many articles in our Help Center.
We are very proud of the articles we have in our Get started and Solve a problem sections. Additionally, our agents may recommend starting your support session with one of these articles since they are so comprehensive and include many steps that we would recommend. That is why it is always best to search the Help Center first before contacting support.
Be prepared to answer some questions
Our support team is incredibly informed on all things Canary, but to better assist you with any troubleshooting, it's important for us to know the specific details about your home network or the mobile devices that you use with the Canary app. All of these questions are required in order to better assist you with your request.
Canary currently offers the following channels to contact support:
- Live chat
Note: Email is the preferred method for all German and French speaking customers.
Chat is the fastest way to get a response from Canary, and we can resolve most questions with a quick chat.

Do you provide phone support?
Canary has found that we are able to assist customers in a more efficient manner through Chat, SMS, and email. These methods for support also help us keep detailed records about your request. Nothing is lost if an Advocate needs to escalate an issue to one of our Specialists or Managers. We do not offer inbound phone support at this time. If one of our support Advocates determines that the issue will be better handled over the phone, we will schedule a time to make an outbound call to resolve the issue.
Note: If you need phone support for Premium Service cancellation and are paying on an annual basis, you will need to contact our dedicated cancellation line directly by phone. Login to the Canary web experience in order to see the phone number listed under 'Manage my plan.'
