In order to access your Workspaces, you’ll need to make sure your browser can accept third-party cookies. Third-party cookies are required for all Workspaces to work correctly. There is no security risk to our cookie.
If you are concerned about third-party cookies in general, or if you’re using a network with additional security restrictions (such as a work or school network) you can keep third-party cookies disabled and still make an exception for our cookie, which is on the domain udacity-student-workspaces.com. If you’re using a work or school network, you may need to ask your IT department or network administrator to do this for you.

If you have third-party cookies enabled and you’re still having trouble accessing your Workspace, here are some additional things you can try:
- Make sure you’re using the latest version of a supported web browser. If you’re using Edge or Safari, try using Chrome or Firefox. We do support Edge and Safari, but our site is optimized to work best in Firefox or Chrome.
- Try disabling your browser extensions. In particular, we've noticed that Ghostery and other extensions that block tracking can prevent Workspaces from loading.
- Try using a different network, if you have access to one.
- If you’re using antivirus software, try temporarily disabling it. Sometimes we’ve seen older antivirus programs cause issues with Workspaces. If this turns out to be the problem, we suggest updating the software if possible, and if you’re using the latest version, contacting the company’s technical support team.
