How To Use Dark Mode On ClickUp

Do you find the default theme of ClickUp too bright? Or are you not a fan of bright apps in the first place? In any case, you can change the theme of your ClickUp app to a darker one. Check our guide below to learn how.


By default, the ClickUp app’s theme for their mobile, web, and desktop apps uses a generally bright color. A lighter color scheme makes it easier for most people to view information and other visuals within the app.

However, we understand that there are people that prefer dark-themed apps so that they can easily use them for low-light settings. Thankfully, ClickUp has a dark mode option to change the general theme color of the app.

Here’s our guide about using dark mode on ClickUp

How to enable dark mode on ClickUp

If you’re not a fan of using ClickUp’s default bright theme, you can turn on dark mode on the app. Dark mode changes the general bright color of the app, making it primarily dark.

You can use the dark mode option whether you’re using ClickUp on your computer or phone. In our tutorials below, we’ll cover the steps for both devices.

On your phone:

  1. Open the ClickUp app from your home screen or app drawer and sign in to your account.
  2. Tap the three lines on the top left corner of the app.

  3. Once the sidebar appears on your screen, tap the gear icon to open your Settings window.

  4. Toggle the Dark mode option to enable it on the app.

Changing the app’s theme to a dark mode changes the background for every screen inside the mobile app.

On your computer:

  1. Launch the ClickUp desktop app or open their web client and sign in to your account.
  2. Click your profile icon at the bottom of the left sidebar.

  3. Click the “Dark mode” option on the menu to toggle it.

That’s how you toggle the dark mode theme on ClickUp. If you want to use the theme on the ClickUp mobile and web app, you’ll need to configure your settings for both.

To wrap things up

Now that you know how to change the theme on ClickUp, you can freely switch between the light and dark modes on the app. Generally, the dark mode theme allows you to see better in low-light settings without straining your eyes.
