How to Change Etsy Profile Picture on App

To change the picture on your Etsy profile through the app, you will need to have the app installed already on your device.

If you haven’t done that, just go to the App Store and Google Play Store on your device, copy and paste the term: “Etsy” without the quotes in the search bar/box.

The official app for the Etsy app should be the first on the search results, tap on “Install” to install it on your Android or iPhone and that’s it.

Moving on, before we get started with the tutorial on how to change your pfp (profile picture) on your Etsy account, make sure that the picture checks the following boxes:

  • SFW (safe for work),
  • Belongs to you; to avoid copyright claims,
  • It’s in the recommended size (500x500px).

Let’s get started.

Step 1. Open the Etsy app

The first step is to open the Etsy app on your device (iPhone or Android).

On the bottom right of your screen, tap on “You”, and a list of options should pop up.

From that list, select and tap on “Settings” and continue to the next step.

Step 2. Go to “Privacy settings”

After you must have tapped on “Settings” as instructed in step 1, go ahead and tap on “Privacy settings”.

A new list of options should be shown on your screen, just scroll down to “To access additional options…” and tap on the “here” hyperlink to reveal “Privacy Policy Settings”.

Step 3. Choose your profile picture and save the changes

Next, navigate to “Public Profile” on the top of your screen by tapping on it.

Here you should be able to choose a new profile picture for your Etsy profile; remember it will be visible to everyone who visits your profile.

Tap on the “Choose File” button and you will be redirected to the Gallery or Photos app on your smartphone.

Tap on the new profile picture you want, and you will be taken back to your Etsy app; scroll to the bottom of the “Public profile” page and tap on the black “Save Changes” button.


And that is how you change the picture (pfp) on your Etsy profile using the mobile app.
