Netflix is a Streaming service where we pay on a subscription basis to get those services. It allows the paid member to watch TV shows and movies without commercials on their preferred internet-connected device.

When we subscribe to Netflix, we will have a unique username, pin, and profile that we can manage. They, by default, give you a smiley face profile picture when you first time purchase the service. Each user has a unique profile.

It allows you to change or modify your profile on their website. You can’t change your Profile on Netflix App, iOS, Android, Roku, or Xbox.

It allows us to change or modify our profile picture but only from the available list of icons, or we can use the characters of the shows/ movies available on Netflix.

In my research, I have found out that we can also customize Netflix profile pictures using the Chrome extension, but it only works on browsers where the extension is applied. This custom profile picture will not appear on other devices.
