Five years since its introduction, Netflix is upgrading its profiles feature.
Now, subscribers can have icons featuring their favorite character from a Netflix original show, from Luke Cage to Steve from "Stranger Things."

Netflix first launched individual profiles in August 2013, and now, they're getting a more personalized upgrade.

Every Netflix account can have up to five profiles.
