Change your profile name, photo, or password

In Classroom, you can change your profile photo or password. Your G Suite administrator can change your profile name that's used in all Google services.

Change your profile name

Your G Suite administrator can change your first and last name that appears in all Google services. After they change your profile name, the new name appears in messages, shared documents, calendar invitations, and in your school's searchable directory. However, your email address and the name you use to sign in to your account doesn't change.

To change your profile name, contact your G Suite administrator.

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. 

Your photo can be a JPG, JPEG, or PNG file of up to 5 MB. Photos are scaled automatically, so they can be any dimensions.
