Hello I changed my store front image on Monday and when I google my business today the old image appears.  How long will the new update take?

In my experience, Google will not always show the image you set. Generally exterior images and images with digital graphics are not displayed. Interior photos and product photos are often good photos to use. The quality of the photo and if the listing is verified in your dashboard will also help determine if it is displayed.
From Google support doc:
  • Cover photo: Showcase your page’s personality. Adding a cover photo automatically sets it as your listing’s preferred photo. This action doesn’t guarantee it populates as the first image for your business, but it does tell Google you prefer to display this photo.

Are you referring to the image that shows up your map listing shows up? Or when you show up in a local result on the right side of the page? Unfortunately, those can't be changed, Google determines what they want to show up there. They pick odd photo's at times and rotate through them. I have a client that has a screenshot of a video that shows up half the time as their main image. Go figure.

It is best that you remove your e-mail address as the user name so your contact information will not be so public.  Are you asking about your Google My Business page or your entire Google Account access?

Did you try wait and see that your profile image has been set, or did the image show up among your other images?  Because it should be almost immediately. but i would suggest you try to upload it again.

Its a normal issue since Google probably has its own security features. But it would usually take 0-24 hours for my profile picture to change. Forget about it and it will change on its own.
