My Account

Your account information contains your login credentials and personal information that was initially entered during the Magento Setup. You can edit the account information, and also create additional Admin user accounts with various permission levels.

As a best practice, it’s good to have more than one Admin account with full permissions, so if you ever forget your password, you won’t be locked out of the Admin.

To edit your account information:

1. On the Admin menu, select System > My Account.
2. Make any changes necessary to the following:
  • User Name
  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Email
3. To change your Admin password, do the following:
a. Enter your Current Admin Password.
b. Enter your New Password. To confirm, enter it again in the Password Confirmation field.
4. When complete, click the Save Account button.
5. Make sure to update your records so you don’t forget the new password. You will need it the next time you log in to the Admin.
