Every user’s profile settings are stored like that. However, you cannot apply any changes here since user data can only be modified in the Shopware Account settings. Hit the corresponding link in the alert message to edit your user information (we will return to this step later).

There is also the Account Settings section, but it is a topic of another article. 

How to Edit Profile Settings in Shopware 6

As we’ve already mentioned, it is impossible to edit profile settings in your Shopware 6 installation in the admin section. You need to go to your Shopware account situated under https://account.shopware.com/. Alternatively, you can hit the link in Your Profile that redirects to the same location.

Note that you cannot change your email address here. All other changes that you apply here are transferred to your Shopware 6 profile in your e-commerce website’s administration section.
