Upload a picture

  1. Open your Yandex.Passport.
  2. Hover over your picture and and click .
  3. Upload an image from your computer or enter a direct link to the image (for example, from a social network).

If you don't have a profile picture uploaded, Yandex.Mail will make one automatically. The picture will display your initials against a single-color background (such as “AL” for Alice Little, or just the first letter of a company name, such as “W” for the “Wonderland” company).

Note. Use Yandex.Mail if you want to make sure the picture is displayed properly. If your message recipient uses a different mail service, it may not support this feature and the recipient will not see your picture in the message header.

Change the profile picture

  1. Open your Yandex.Passport.
  2. Hover over your picture and and click .
  3. Upload an image from your computer or enter a direct link to the image (for example, from a social network).

If you upload a new profile picture over an old one, the old picture is saved in Yandex.Passport. You can always roll back to it by deleting your latest picture.

Delete a profile picture

  1. Open your Yandex.Passport.
  2. Hover over your picture and and click .
  3. In the window that opens, hover over your picture and and click .

If you've uploaded several pictures (i.e. uploaded a new profile picture over the old one), then only the latest one will be deleted. The older picture will take its place in your profile. If you want to delete all profile pictures, delete each one individually.

If you delete all of your profile pictures, Yandex.Mail will make one automatically. The picture will display your initials against a single-color background (such as “AL” for Alice Little, or just the first letter of a company name, such as “W” for the “Wonderland” company).

Problems with the profile picture

I have uploaded a picture, but it is not displayed

If the picture is not displayed on the Sender information page or in the email list, you will have to wait a little. The system requires some time to load new information about the user. If the picture isn't updated in a week, try clearing your browser cache and deleting all cookies.
