    Lo there,

    Technically very capable - but relative Newbie with my 2012 Nexus.
    Son has just got the better of me.
    I have configured the tablet with 4 users - me being the owner

    Son number 2 seems to have added his google+ profile to his (non-restricted) user account on the tablet.
    So his Google+ profile photo seems to show up at the login screen, while the rest of us just get a coloured blob.

    When I checked his user settings I see Goggle+ is listed in the profile.
    Can't work out how he did this (and he doesn't remember), as I can't seem to be able to pick anything which will add my google+ account profile to my user settings

    Obviously I could just select a pic from the device, but it would be nice to get this linked to the google+ account, so any profile photo changes filter through to the nexus.

    Any advice appreciated

    Cheers

    Welcome to the forums. I have no idea what to suggest, but I saw you were new and wanted to say hi.

    Have you entered your name and G+ info? Under settings>Google (under accounts)>Google+ there's an add account button. Then go into settings>users>you and click on your G+ profile pic and you'll get a "use this picture" dialogue to click.

    Thanks. Tried this, but no joy.
    Also tried removing google+ profile and re-entering. Again nothing.
    In the end I tried turning on the G+ photo sync'ing which I had deselected and that seems to have done the trick.
    All sorted now.

    Cheers
