How can I set my profile picture?

In Threema you can define the profile picture with which you are represented in the contact lists of your chat partners. You have full control over who your profile picture is shared with. To set a profile picture, do the following:

  • Android
    • Open the “My Profile” tab
    • Tap on the arrow next to your Threema ID
    • Tap on the contact picture symbol (or on the existing profile picture, if one has already been set)
    • Choose between “Take a photo” and “Select from gallery”
    • Determine the image section to be used and confirm by tapping on «Save image»
    • Finally, decide who will share your profile picture with by tapping on “Share profile picture with” and making the desired selection

  • iOS
    • Navigate to the “My Profile” tab and tap on the contact picture symbol (or on the existing profile picture, if one has already been set)
    • Tap on “Choose picture” (or on the existing profile picture, if one has already been set), and take a photo or select an existing picture
    • Determine the image section to be used and confirm by tapping on «Select»
    • Finally, decide who will share your profile picture with by tapping on “Share profile picture with” and making the desired selection

For privacy reasons, profile pictures are not stored on our server, but are transmitted end-to-end encrypted from user to user when sending messages.

The next time you send a message to a contact, your profile picture will be automatically sent to them (if your settings allow it). Alternatively, you can click «Send profile picture now» in the detailed view of a contact to initiate the transmission of your profile picture to the relevant contact.

Your profile picture will not be displayed for chat partners who have deactivated the display of profile pictures.
