Change your profile photo or password

In Classroom, you can change your profile photo or 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. 

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.
