Why Change Your Picture in GCash?

The profile picture in GCash is purely for customization purposes only. Your picture will not show up when another user sends money to you.

GCash respects the user’s privacy but also wants them to use the app more. So, one way to make your user experience incredible is to personalize your GCash account.

But we noticed that if you add a photo of a contact you have saved on your phone, it will show up when sending money in GCash.

For instance, you have the number of your spouse or family member saved. You can add their photo and it will show up when you send money to them.

There’s no limit to how many times you can change your profile picture in GCash. So, you can change it as often as you want.

No, as of now, there’s no direct way to do this. But the indirect way is easy enough to do as we listed the steps above.

Why can’t I edit my GCash profile?

If you can’t edit your GCash profile, it means that you haven’t verified your GCash account. Verify your GCash now to change your picture and access all the features.

Can I send GCash anonymously?

When you send money from GCash to another GCash user, they will only see your name and GCash-registered mobile number. But when you do a bank transfer, the recipient will not see who sent it.


Changing your GCash profile picture is a fun way to personalize your account. A picture allows you to engage with your account more than just a blank picture like most users.
