The refresh will mean that users will have dozens of new options to choose from based on Netflix shows including Orange is the new Black, Stranger things and more. Conk also used the opportunity to remind all Netflix subscribers that every account can support up to five profiles. "The stories - and the characters in them -are also your heroes, frenemies, soulmates and everything in between". If you don't have one yet, we highly suggest you make one - and personalize it with an icon like Luke Cage, Crazy Eyes, or another one of your favorite characters.

Your profile icon
Your profile

It's a trivial change on some level, but Netflix wants to make sure you actually select your own profile when signing in. We're also introducing a bunch of new icons - including some of the most beloved characters from Netflix shows and movies. Instead, it's revamping them with more colors and animations. In celebration of Netflix profiles turning 5 today, Netflix announced that their profile icons that have remained unchanged for five years are getting an update. (However, profiles aren't password-protected, so, according to Netflix, "You, the parent or guardian, will need to ensure your child uses only the correct profile.") In addition, you can set up and customize Netflix profiles for different moods, such as "romance" or "thrillers".
