How To Change Your NetFlix Profile Image


If you haven’t noticed, Netflix has expanded their inventory of profile images, or as they like to call them, “Icons”. When I first started using this service I only had a few choices for my profile image. If you know me, this makes me very sad since I love to customize everything or at least choose something that reflects my personality. Then one of my boys pointed out that I could change my image to something new! The one thing he didn’t mention was how many options I had (way more than I expected). Some of you may not even know that you can update this on your account. So, let me walk you through how this process is done, plus show you what they have added. Sit back and open up Netflix, because it is time to add some ‘tude to your account.

Step 4: Here is where you get to choose a new look. As you can see at the top, it shows the last choices you made. Plus, it offers you the Classic icons that it offered before. If you scroll down, you will see all the new choices they offer. This might be a little different on every account depending on what you have been watching. I’m going to choose the cop from the Netflix movie Bright for this article
