How to Set a Custom Netflix Profile Picture & Change it with Own Photo

What’s great about streaming services these days is the ability to create different profiles in one account, so you can have your separate space that does not affect other users. When you create mutiple user profiles, you can personalize your Watch History, set a realistic Recommendation, and manage your List.

When you subscribe to Netflix, you can make and manage up to five different profiles. Imagine having separate profiles for each family member or group of friends. If you want to stream your favorite TV shows and movies, you can switch to your personal profile and see the library content up to your liking. Unfortunately, Netflix does not allow you to customize your profile picture.

When you create profiles on Netflix, you can set a different profile picture to distinguish the various profiles. However, Netflix already has default templates you can use. It may be useful if you only want to set up a profile and go. But, if you want to make it more fun, you need to have a custom profile picture.
