Netflix permits up to five user profiles per account, each with its own set of preferences and personalised suggestions. When you join up with Netflix, an avatar will be chosen for you automatically; you can alter it to one of several available options. You can’t use your own photo, though.
In this article, we’ll demonstrate how to change your Netflix desktop profile picture by installing a browser add-on.
Here’s the Lowdown on Changing Your Netflix Profile Pic
Take into account that this method only affects the immediate vicinity. Your profile photo will update on your browser but not on your phone or any other device. If you want to do that, here’s how, but keep in mind that you can’t upload your own image to Netflix.
The “Custom profile image for Netflix” browser addon is a must-have to get started. To instal an extension, go to the Google Chrome Store, click the Add to Chrome button, and then click Add Extension.
In the case that you already have a Netflix account set up, the profile page will open in a new tab after the installation is complete. In such case, log in and, when prompted to choose a profile, remain where you are.
If you’re using Google Chrome, you may change your profile picture by clicking the Extensions button in the tab’s upper right.
In the Profile dropdown menu next to the Upload custom profile image box, choose the profile you wish to edit.
Just select an image by clicking the button that says Select image next to Image. When you click that, you’ll get to the appropriate folder on your computer.
To utilise an existing image, navigate to it, click Open, and then choose it. Make sure the file size is less than 5 megabytes.
After the photo has been uploaded, you may use the icons in the Alignment box to move it about; these also serve as a crude cropping tool.
After you’ve finished cropping, close the extension by clicking outside of it, then refresh the Netflix page to see your newly cropped profile photo.
Tune Netflix to Your Specific Needs
Netflix’s options for profile pictures are extremely restricted. Follow these simple steps to upload your own own profile image using a Google Chrome extension.
When you’ve settled on a profile image, the next step is to think about the ideal browser to use when binge-watching Netflix.
