Every WordPress user has the option to edit the profile he/she owns on your WordPress based website. In this particular tutorial, we will discuss how an active admin user should update the "Your Profile" section presented in the admin area of WordPress.
To edit your WordPress profile, you need to learn:
To access the section which will allow you to edit your profile, get in the WordPress admin area, and navigate to Users → Your Profile.
The first set of options will help you with editing and the visual aspect of your WordPress experience.
The last two options available in this section are the Keyboard Shortcuts and Toolbar ones.
Both are quite useful and we recommend to at least leave the Toolbar enabled all the time as it keeps active your admin toolbar shown above every page.
The name options here will also be used by some plugins so make sure you keep a correct and presentable information in these fields.
The contact information associated with the account:
The section also contains fields where you can also change your current admin password and a button to log out of all active sessions except the one you are currently using.
The latter option is good if you have forgotten your account open on another device or want to immediately limit access to only one device.
Note that you can add more fields like social media links or extra personalization information like job position, meta description etc via plugins such as Yoast.
Once you are done editing your profile, you should press the Update Profile button. That will save the information you have added/changed on your profile.
