However, users can easily change both their name and their profile picture anytime they want.

Quick Note: If you still see the same profile picture on your account, you’ll need to remove it from the Microsoft account profile settings.
To do it, navigate to “account.microsoft.com" from your computer or mobile browser > click on your name at the top and click on the ‘Your Info’ option > change picture’ > click on ‘Remove’.
Quick Note: For those that might not see the Remove picture option, there is no need to worry because you can remove the picture using the desktop app or web version of Microsoft Teams.
Users can also remove their profile picture from the web version of Microsoft Teams from their smartphone. However, they will be prompted to download the Teams abb, but they can bypass this restriction by converting and viewing the Microsoft Teams web version in desktop mode.
The steps to do it are the following:
If you are not taken to the Microsoft Teams screen immediately, you will see a page asking you to download the Microsoft Teams app. For those using a Chrome browser, tap on the tree-dots (top of the browser) > select ‘Desktop site’.
For those using the Safari browser, tap on the ‘aA’ icon (top section) > choose ‘Request Desktop Website’.
After you finish this, you should refresh the page (maybe do it a couple of times) until you see a new screen that says ‘Use the web app instead’ – tap on that too. Next, you will be redirected to the Microsoft Teams page.
