How to Change Profile Icon on Disney Plus


Disney Plus lets you create up to seven different profiles under a single Disney Plus account. This means that if you’re a family with a lot of people who will be using a single account, each person can set up their own profile where they can have their own watchlist and see content recommended based on their viewing habits. A great way to help distinguish your account from everyone else’s is to choose your own profile icon. While Disney doesn’t let you upload a custom picture, it does let you choose an icon associated with many of the more popular characters in its library. The process for changing your profile icon is similar across the various platforms you can access Disney Plus on. Examples of all instructions in the steps can be seen in the YouTube video below.
