You can update your account information, password and security settings (2FA) within the profile tab.

Activate 2-Factor Authentication (2FA)

You will need an authenticator app installed on your phone (e.g. Microsoft or Google Authenticator) to activate 2FA. To enable it, go to Profile > Security Settings and enable 2FA. A QR code will will be displayed that you need to scan with your Authenticator app.
