Technical requirements

DataLab will work out of the box, with lots of functionality that is readily available for you in your browser. To securely connect to DataLab, however, you will need to meet certain technical requirements. By default, these are usually met automatically if you use a standard browser on a standard network.

Browser requirements

In order to have the best experience in DataLab, you should be using any of the following browsers:

  • Google Chrome

  • Mozilla Firefox

  • Safari

  • Microsoft Edge

Other browser might also work, but have not been tested thoroughly.

Network rules

If you are on a managed network, like a company network, it is possible your IT/security specialist has set up some rules to restrict network access from within the network. This can affect your experience on DataCamp. The system requirements of DataCamp as a whole are described in this support article.

In this article, we want to give a bit more context on the hosts that need to be whitelisted on your network in order to use DataLab specifically:

  • *.datacamp.com: this is the standard DataCamp domain, used for most of our applications on the web.

  • *.datacamp-workspace.com: this is a secure domain used by DataLab, in order let you safely interact with your workbook. By using a separate domain for certain parts of our product, we create a layer of security that makes it impossible for malicious users to perform harmful operations on our platform. When this domain is not whitelisted, it’s possible that parts of DataLab don’t work.
