How to remove your Google profile picture.

Google displays your profile picture in all of its products. If you want to keep your photo private, you can remove the photo from your profile. We’ll show you how to do this for your Google Account.

We’ll also show you how to remove an image from Google’s archives so that it is no longer accessible.

Note that Google’s mobile app does not offer the option to remove the profile picture. Therefore, you will need to use a web browser on your Windows, Mac, Linux, Chromebook, iPhone, iPad, or Android device to perform the image removal process.
