Want a custom profile picture for Netflix? Here’s how to change your photo icon. Follow these simple steps to personalise your streaming experience.

Netflix has become the streaming service of choice for so many audiences around the world.

From TV hits such as Stranger Things and Bridgerton to films from such celebrated filmmakers as David Fincher (Mank) and Spike Lee (Da 5 Bloods), the streamer arguably caters to all tastes.

Perhaps one of the best things about Netflix is the way in which the service helps make the experience of streaming feel personal.

When watching a title, we’re asked whether we are enjoying it or not and are given the option to rate the content we consume. This means that we’re recommended a wealth of offerings based on our preference, so that very few Netflix profiles look the same.

However, some would say that the profile pictures fail to reflect this unique experience.
