Guide: How to Change Your Avatar on the PS4
Posted by Sammy Barker
Your avatar is the first thing that other players will see on the PlayStation Network, so you’ll need to pick a good one if you want to be respected by the rest of the population on the PlayStation 4. Fortunately, it’s easy to pick a different icon – you just need to follow these simple steps.
1. Go to the PS4 Settings Screen
Once you’ve logged into your PS4’s primary account, push up on the d-pad to access the top layer of menu options. Scroll all the way to the right until you find a toolbox labelled ‘Settings’, and tap the X button.
2. Select PSN
In the menu, scroll down to the option labelled ‘PSN’ using the d-pad and select it with the X button.
3. Select Account Information
In the PSN area, scroll down to the option labelled ‘Account Information’ using the d-pad and select it with the X button.
4. Select Profile
Once you’re into the ‘Account Information’ screen, scroll down to ‘Profile’ with the d-pad and select it with the X button.
5. Change Your Avatar
In the ‘Profile’ area, scroll down to ‘Avatar’ with the d-pad and select it with the X button. This will bring up an image of your current icon. Click on it to show a list of available alternatives and select the one that you want with the X button. You’ll then be shown a preview of the new image. Select ‘Confirm’ with the X button to save your choice.
