How do I change my profile photo or name?

To set your profile photo and name:

  1. Go to WhatsApp > Settings and tap on your profile photo at the top.
  2. Tap your profile photo > Edit to take a new profile photo or upload a photo from your albums.
  3. Tap the text field to change the name that is visible to your contacts. This name will only appear for contacts who do not already have your contact info.

If you block a contact, that person will not see any updates to your profile photo. You can also configure your privacy settings to choose who can see your profile photo.
