If you got overzealous with the badge selection, or accidentally selected one, you need a way to clean that up.

First, click the “Show More” button, and then the “Edit” button under the badges section.

Once you click the “Edit” button, your badge selection menu will pop up.

Scroll to the top of the selection menu and click “Add New Badge”.

This should bring you to a menu of badges to choose from. Your currently selected badges will be filled in with color, and have a checkmark in the top right corner.

After you click the “Add” button, you’ll be brought back to the previous menu. Scroll through your list, and you’ll see your updated badges.
