Netflix is currently among the leading streaming platforms worldwide, with over 214 million paid memberships as of Q3 of 2021, and Netflix is available in over 190 countries.
The platform offers a variety of titles to choose from, and users love it due to how good the user interface is developed.
One of the best things about Netflix is the 1 month free-trial. New users love it, especially since it gives you enough time to decide whether the app is a good fit for you, and you don’t have to pay until you make up your mind!
Additionally, Netflix allows you to create profiles once you’ve created an account, so you and friends/family can keep track of what you’ve seen and what you haven’t.
Alongside the profiles, there are profile pictures that can be put on each profile.
However, is it possible to create custom profile pictures, instead of using the premade Netflix ones?
The process of changing your profile icon on Netflix is quite simple. In case you’re not familiar with how to do that as well, follow these steps:
However, for those wondering whether it’s possible to place a custom profile photo on Netflix, it is. The process is not as simple as using a Netflix pre-made photo, though.
To change the profile picture, but stay within Netflix guidelines, there are two possible solutions: using your Facebook account profile photo or using an extension to make the change.
As we mentioned, you can have your Facebook photo as a profile icon on Netflix. In order to make this change, you need to link your Facebook account with your Netflix account. To do so, go to Netflix’s webpage, and log in by clicking the ‘Login using Facebook’. This will automatically link your accounts, and you will have an additional section ‘Social’ - where you’ll be able to see your friends’ recommendations.
Before proceeding, install this Google Extension Add-On from the Chrome Web Store. With this extension called Custom Profile Picture, you’ll be able to put a customized profile icon on Netflix.
After installing the add-on, open Netflix using Google Chrome.
Activate the extension, and choose the photo you want to choose as your Netflix profile icon.
Custom profile icons can only be up to 5 MB, and they must be square-shaped, otherwise, you will not be allowed to set the photo as your profile picture.
Unfortunately, unless you’re using the Web Browser, along with the Google Chrome Extension, you won’t be able to add a custom photo as your profile icon on Netflix.
However, you can change the photo if you want to use one of Netflix’s premade ones. To do so, follow the steps we mentioned above in this article.
