Use this guide to configure the Self-service Account Update page, which enables end-users to modify and update their own profiles.

Once end-users securely log into the tool, they can enter new information (mobile number, personal email address); update existing information (new home address, last name change); and update Multi-Factor Authentication information, including setting PIN numbers, selecting Knowledge-based Questions, resetting Device Recognition information, and revoking devices / browsers provisioned for Time-based Passcode generation, Push Notifications, and Push-to-Accept Login Requests.

Depending on the configured directory permissions, all of the changes made on the Self-service Account Update page are written to and updated in the corporate data store. This significantly reduces directory management time and costs.
