Account settings cover your individual account. Managing teams is covered in the Teams section.
On your Account Settings page, you can edit account information and settings, like your name, email address, password, and two-factor authentication.
To access your account settings, click the profile icon in the top right of the console and then click Your Account from the dropdown.
Click the profile icon in the top right of the console and then click Your Account from the dropdown. From here you can manage your account settings.

On the Profile tab, you'll see fields for your first and last name as well as your email address. To update your info, enter new details, then your password, and click save.
Changing Your Password
Navigate to the Security tab to update your password.
You must enter your current password in order to update it. If you don’t remember your current password, you can reset it.
While viewing your Private Workspace, click the profile icon in the top right of the console and then click Team Settings from the dropdown. From here you can manage your profile.
Your username (also referred to as namespace) is a unique string that must meet the following criteria:
- May only contain lowercase alphanumeric characters or hyphens.
- Cannot have multiple consecutive hyphens.
- Cannot begin or end with a hyphen.
- Must be a maximum of 39 characters.
Profile Photo, Bio, Location, & Website
We recommend completing your profile when collaborating people within Paperspace (using teams) and when sharing resources with people external to Paperspace (such as a Gradient Notebook).
Your Account ID (handle)
In addition to your username, your personal account also has a permanent ID. Since your username, email, and other profile settings can be changed, the ID is useful e.g. when sharing info about your account to the Paperspace Support team. This ID can be found under the Profile tab of your Private Workspace.
GitHub & Google Authentication
Paperspace offers several options for authentication such as email and password, SAML-based Single Sign-On (SSO) for businesses, and OAuth with GitHub and Google. The email address of your account on GitHub or Google will be used within Paperspace. If you use GitHub or Google, we strongly recommend that you enable two-factor authentication on the GitHub or Google account you use to log in to Paperspace.
Linking your GitHub Account
In order to use certain features such as the Gradient Workflows GitHub integration, you must authenticate your GitHub account. You can configure this option on Linked Accounts section of the the Profile tab.
Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) is available to add an extra layer of security to your Paperspace login. Learn how to set up 2FA here.
Click the profile icon in the top right of the console and then click Your Account from the dropdown. At the bottom of the Profile tab you'll see a section called Deactivate Account. Click deactivate and follow the prompts to cancel your account.
