The Profile page in your MailChimp account is specific to you and is carried across any accounts you have access to.
Below, you'll learn how to find your profile settings, update your profile picture and basic information, and change your username and password.
Find Profile Settings
To edit the profile settings in your account, click your profile name to open the drop-down menu, and choose
Upload or Change Profile Photo
From your profile page, you can upload an image from your computer or click the Take A Photo! button to use your computer's camera to take a quick snap shot. After your photo appears, you can click the pencil icon on your profile photo to edit the image using Aviary.
Your profile photo will display next to your profile name on the sidebar navigation. This photo also appears next to your profile name when editing and leaving comments in the Campaign Builder and also next to any notes you make in a subscriber's profile.
To delete your photo, click Remove current photo.
- Internet Explorer does not currently support the Take A Photo option. If you use Internet Explorer with MailChimp, you need to use the Upload Photo button to set a profile photo.
- You can keep your account even more secure by setting up two-factor authentication with Google Authenticator. We offer a 10% discount for MailChimp accounts where all Owner and Admin logins have Google Authenticator set up.
Update Basic Information
We use the name entered in the First name field under the Basic information heading as your profile name. If you have access to multiple accounts, your name appears in bold next to the username of the account you are currently logged in to.
To change the profile name for your account, provide new information in the
First name and
Last name fields, then click the
Update button for that section.
Change Username or Password
To change your username, enter a new username under Basic information and click the Update button. To change your password, follow the steps below.

The generated password displays next to the Use this password link.
Use this password. On the
