User settings

Users can manage various settings for their Okta sessions. This includes changing their personal information, display language, and password. They can also set up additional authenticators and view their recent activity.

By default, end users access their settings by clicking the arrow beside their name on the End-User Dashboard, and then selecting Settings.

Direct access to the Settings page

Early Access release. See Enable self-service features.

You can provide a direct URL to your users so they can access their settings without going to the End-User Dashboard first. Share this URL with your users: https://<org URL>/account-settings/home.

You can provide both the End-User Dashboard and the direct URL method to access the Settings page. If you restrict access to your End-User Dashboard to certain groups of users, ensure that you activate the direct URL so that users can still manage their settings. See Control access to the Okta End-User Dashboard.

If you activate this feature, the name of the menu item on the End-User Dashboard changes to My Settings.

Secure account changes

Before a user can manage their settings, they must verify their identity using the Edit Profile button. The user verifies their identity using any two of the authenticators that they're enrolled in.

When a user begins making account changes, they reauthenticate according to the re-authentication frequency that you configured for the org. The count begins when the user clicks Edit Profile.

User experience

Users see these items when they access the Settings page through the End-User Dashboard and the direct URL. Click the link in the How admins configure it column for each setting to learn how to set it up for your users.
