Hotjar works with the vast majority of technologies used to create websites, however, there are some platforms that Hotjar cannot be used on due to technical limitations.
If you do not see the platform you are using on this list, reach out to our support team, and we will investigate into whether or not Hotjar can be used to gain insights from your site.
Hotjar can only be installed on sites you own
You need administrative access to the web hosting of any site you want to track with Hotjar. You also need to have the ability to insert the Hotjar tracking code into the HTML of any page you want to track. This requires that you either own the site, or have explicit permission from the site owner to edit it.

|Android/iOS Apps||Hotjar is not compatible with mobile apps. It is currently only compatible with websites and web-based applications.||May 7th, 2019|
|Polymer||Polymer uses the shadow DOM and requires different shims for different browsers, making it impossible for us to track at this time.||January 17th, 2019|
|TinyMCE||TinyMCE creates an iframe within which the text is edited on the page. As a result, Hotjar is unable to track the text that is entered in the iframe (since scripts can't see inside iframes).||January 17th, 2019|
