🔢 Custom backgrounds are a Premium feature. You must upgrade your account to access them.
⬇ If you downgrade your account, your background will be replaced with your feature image as normal.

When it comes to viewing your link on a mobile, most will show your background too. However, some older models that have a smaller screen may crop your background down slightly.
