If you are concerned that your recipients could access their credentials to early in your canvas course, you can prevent that from happening.
Many Canvas users want to set up their certificates or badges so that students can only access them after completing other parts of a module or achieving a particular score in a quiz or assignment.
The Accredible Canvas integration is made so that you can add a certificate or badge like any other item within a module. Students receive the credential when they click the item within the module. This means you can use the built-in features in Canvas to limit access to a certificate or badge.
Here's a guide from Dartmouth College on setting up those restrictions in Canvas: How to Restrict Credential Access on Canvas Modules
