Manage your photo, password, and other settings

On the Settings page, you can manage your account settings, such as update your profile photo or change your password. If you forgot your password, you might need help from the administrator who manages Classroom for your school. 

Change your profile photo

You can display a profile photo next to your name in Classroom. If you teach in a school, your G Suite for Education profile picture is your Classroom profile photo. Once you add a profile photo, you can’t remove it—you can only replace it with a different photo. 

Note: You can change your profile photo only in the web version of Classroom.
