FontAwesome icons not showing


I’m download Material from but when I’am access from my computer fontawesome not work

Please help me


Hi @avn

Material no longer includes Font Awesome by default. You now need to load Font Awesome separately. You can either host it locally, or use CDN, for example:

<link href="" rel="stylesheet">


I am having same issue … I am building hybrid app in cordova web view. So I am getting the same problem text instead of icons also checkbox goes wrong can you please help me in this regards. I have tested font awesome that works fine but for checkboxs I can’t fix it.


hi @Umair_CSP text showing instead of icons is probably because the lack of ligatures support of the browser you are using:

For browsers that do not support ligatures, fall back to specifying the icons using numeric character references. Find both the icon names and codepoints on the material icons library ( ) by selecting any icon and opening the icon font panel.

for example:

<i class="material-icons">face</i>

would become

<i class="material-icons">&#xE87C;</i>
