How to Change Your wikiHow Profile Picture on iOS

Setting a profile picture on wikiHow on iOS is a little trickier than doing it through a desktop or laptop compute. With a few simple steps, you can change the basic picture, but in order to get it cropped just how you want, you might have to switch to a computer.

    Switch to desktop mode.
    • To do this, click the button with 3 white lines on the top-left corner of the home page. A black box on the left side should appear.
    • Next, on the bottom of the box, you should see "Desktop Site". Click on it.

    Click "My Profile" on your account. This is at the top right of your screen, next to "Explore" and "Messages". Now click "User Page".

    Find your profile picture area, around the top left corner. It should say Add Image with a side view of a person. This is where your profile picture goes. If you already have a profile picture, you'll see a link that says "edit" underneath the image. Click it.
    • You can either choose a picture from your files (pictures that already have been taken) or take a picture.

    After doing so, it lets you crop your picture. This step is tricky on iOS, since the borders can't easily be dragged. However, you can tap elsewhere on the big image to re-center the avatar. If you need to change the edges of the cropped image, you may need to switch to a desktop computer.
    • After cropping, click "Crop and Save".

    See if it satisfies you. It should go back to your profile page with your new profile picture!
    • If it's not the way you wanted it to be, click "Remove Image" below the profile picture, then repeat the process.


  • It doesn't have to be perfect, just something that'll satisfy you and follows the wikiHow Terms.
  • Make your profile picture unique! Remember, it's about you.


  • Don't add profanity, inappropriate content, etc. in your profile picture, as it is against wikiHow's Terms.
