How to Delete the Zoom Profile Picture?

Are you sick and tired of your Zoom profile picture and you want it gone? Enough said!

I’ve created this short guide here to help you do just that. In short, here’s what you must do:

  1. Log in to the Zoom website
  2. Go to “Profile” on the left-hand side menu
  3. Click on your profile picture
  4. Select “Delete
  5. Confirm by clicking “Yes

The only catch is that you can’t do this on the Zoom desktop app. You can only delete your Zoom profile picture on the Zoom website. Which is quite a bummer but we’ll manage!

That’s exactly why you are here to learn, right? – Yeah, well, let’s get to it then.

Below, I’ll explain all of the above in simple, easy-to-follow steps with screenshots to help you out. Let’s start, shall we?

1. Click on “Sign In

Click on "Sign In"
Click on “Sign In

Alright, the first step is opening the official Zoom website, so search for “Zoom” on Google and open the first link (the one that says ““, obviously ).

Once you open it, look for the “Sign In” button in the top-right corner of the homepage. It’s next to the big, orange “SIGN UP, IT’S FREE” button, so you can’t miss it. Then, give it a click! The “SIGN IN” button, I mean.

2. Enter your credentials and log in

Enter your credentials and log in
Enter your credentials and log in

After you’ve clicked the “Sign In” button, you’ll be redirected to the actual login page where you’ll have to enter your email and password. Just bear with me!

Once this is done, you’ll have to click on “Sign In“. That’s it for this step.

Up next:

3. Go to “Profile

Go to "Profile"
Go to “Profile

Finally, you’re logged in to your Zoom account. Now, to find the “Profile” option. You should see it on the left side of the page, under the blue “Home” button. Click it and see what happens!

4. Click on your profile picture

Click on your profile picture
Click on your profile picture

Right about now, you should be on your “Profile settings” page, where you’ll see your profile name and picture. They’re in the center of the page (see the image above).

So, now to delete the profile picture. Take your mouse over it and you should see a pen icon appear. Click it to start the deletion procedure!

5. Select “Delete

Select "Delete"
Select “Delete

After you’ve clicked the pen icon mentioned above (shown in the screenshot), a pop-up window will appear, where you’ll see several options such as “Change“, “Delete“, “Save“, and “Cancel“.

Select “Delete“ to, well, delete your profile picture. And that’s why you’re here, right?

You can change the profile picture with the “Change“ option, just so you know.

6. Confirm by clicking on “Yes

Confirm by clicking on "Yes"
Confirm by clicking on “Yes

And this is the final step (about damn time, right?) Now all you need to do is to confirm the deletion of your profile picture.

A prompt will appear, and you will have to press “Yes” on that prompt. The blue button, remember.

And that’s all to it! Seems complicated? – Well, it’s really not, I promise. That’s why I added images, to help you out. Check them out again and just follow what’s shown to delete your Zoom profile picture in no time!


Removing your profile picture on Zoom is not difficult but I see why it might appear as such. There are many menus and options to choose from.

However, if you follow the steps I outlined above, you should have to problems at all (also check out my screenshots):

  • Log in to the Zoom website
  • Go to “Profile” on the left-hand side menu
  • Click on your profile picture
  • Select “Delete
  • Confirm by clicking “Yes

In case something doesn’t work or that pesky profile picture doesn’t get deleted, just reach out here in the comments, and I’ll look into it. Scout’s honor!

Unforeseen errors, bugs, and other problems make their use of social media problematic. These things will be discussed amply in the guides on Whizcase.

I'll present the facts as they are, and offer quick and easy solutions for them.
