Did you know that you can set a custom profile picture as your Netflix profile icon? If you’re bored of the same profile picture, you can make your Netflix account stand out by putting up a custom picture. While the official Netflix app or website does not let you upload a custom picture, you can still do it with an easy workaround. In this article, we show you how you can set a custom profile picture on Netflix in just a few easy steps.
Here’s how you can set a custom profile picture for your Netflix account
Netflix has a bunch of pre-set profile picture options that you can use on your account across different devices. However, if you want a custom profile picture, you will need to use a Chrome extension tool. The custom profile picture can only be viewed on PC and not the Netflix app on your smartphone or Smart TV. Follow these steps to set a custom profile picture for Netflix.
Step 1: Download the ‘Custom profile photo for Netflix’ extension for your Google Chrome web browser.
Step 2: Once the extension is installed, you will be redirected to the Netflix sign-in page.
Step 3: Click on the ‘Custom profile photo for Netflix’ extension from the toolbar.
Step 4: Choose the profile for which you want to put up a new customised picture.
Step 5: Upload a picture from your picture. Make sure the image size is less than 5MB.
Step 6: Select the image alignment.
Your customised profile picture will be uploaded to your Netflix account.
How to change your profile picture on the Netflix app
You can also change your profile picture from the Netflix app on your smartphone. Netflix provides its users with a range of profile picture options to choose from. These changes will be reflected on the Netflix app for your smartphone, Smart TV and PC as well. Simply follow the steps mentioned below.
Step 1: Open the Netflix app on your smartphone.
Step 2: Tap on the pencil icon at the top right corner of the screen.
Step 3: Tap the pencil again on your profile icon.
Step 4: Select the template you want to set as your profile picture.
This is how you can set a custom profile picture on Netflix. Remember that you will only be able to see the custom picture on your profile when you log in using your PC. The changes will not be reflected on your smartphone or TV app. However, Netflix allows you to choose your profile picture from a range of templates on the TV and smartphone app.
