How can I change my profile icon?

When you are signed in to your account, IXL displays your profile icon in the upper-right corner of the page. This icon helps students verify that they are signed in to their account when they are practising.

A fun feature for students practising maths or English is the ability to use a prize from the Awards tab as a profile icon. All they need to do is select which prize they’d like to use and drag and drop it in the upper-right corner.

If you have a family account, you can choose to use a profile icon from the icon gallery. Sign in, and open your account menu. Select Profile & settings. Scroll to the right using the arrow to view additional icons. Click on the icon you want, and click Submit.
