In order to set a profile photo which will eventually appear in a small round circle on the lock screen, to do this go to settings >> users


Under users accounts, you will have user profiles listed. One thing you should know is that you can only set the profile image for a user once you are logged in with that user profile.

In order to set the profile image tap on the user logo image


Once you tap, you will see a new section opened where you can specify the information about the user and also you can set the profile image – either by choosing them from existing photos or take a fresh photo using the camera on the android device.


Please Note: Once you select the option to choose the photo from gallery make sure that you select a photo which is smaller in dimensions and suited for the profile image.


Once you have cropped and set the picture as profile image, lock your android device and then you will see the new profile image on the lock screen at the bottom center.
