Avatars

Your avatar is used to represent you in chats and elsewhere on Peerio. When you first create your account it will be a randomly chosen colour with the initial of your first name. You can customize your avatar by uploading a photo. Here's how.

Mobile

To start, tap the settings button in the bottom right corner.

To clear your avatar tap the icon of the trashcan. It will go back to being a coloured circle with your initial.

Other users will see your new avatar after they sign out and sign back into Peerio.

Desktop

The circle with the initial of your first name in the top left corner of the Peerio window is your current avatar. It also opens Peerio's main menu. To change it, click on it and select Profile.

    "generators" should be "generated".

    Will Peerio notify me if the avatar changes or am I expected to remember what random shapes someone had for their avatars? That idea won't scale.

    No one can remember that kind of image. You should allow users to upload their own avatar. Just provide a size limit.
