  • Change your theme
  • Update your notification settings
  • Enable or disable multi-factor authentication (MFA)

Change your display name and email address

You can change your display name or email address from your profile. Here's how:

  1. Navigate to your profile.
  2. In the "My profile" section, type in the First name, Last name, and/or Email address fields to change them.
  3. Click Update my info.

Your changes are confirmed. Test them by logging out and logging back in with your updated email address. If you changed your name, your new display name appears after you log in.

Email addresses are case sensitive

When you update your email address, the address is case sensitive. Future attempts to log in with that email address will fail if you use different casing.

For example, if you sign up as "example@your-work-email.com" and later log in as "EXAMPLE@Your-Work-Email.com", the login attempt will fail.

Change your password

You can set your LaunchDarkly password from your profile, in the "My password" section. You must have your current password to reset your password while logged in. If you sign in to LaunchDarkly though an SSO provider, such as Okta, Google, or your organization's SSO, you can reset your password through that provider. To learn more, read Single sign-on.

Can't remember your current password?

If you don't know your current password, contact Support.

New LaunchDarkly passwords must have:

  • at least eight characters, and at least three of the four following items
  • one uppercase letter,
  • one lowercase letter,
  • one number, or
  • one special character.

To set a new password:

  1. Click your member icon in the left sidenav. A menu appears.
  2. Click Personal settings. Your profile page appears.
  3. In the "My password" section, enter your password in the Current password field.
  4. Enter a new password in the New password field.
  5. Re-enter the password identically in the Confirm new password field.
  6. Click Update my password.

Your password is confirmed. You can test it by logging out and logging back in with the new password.

You can also reset your password by following this procedure. To learn more about why you may need to reset your password, read Resetting your password.

Change your theme

To change the theme of the LaunchDarkly UI, click your profile picture. Then choose Switch to dark theme or Switch to default theme.

Update your notification settings

You can customize which notifications you receive and what platforms you receive them on. The default notification settings send notifications on all available platforms.

You can receive notifications about the following events:

  • Approvals: receive notifications when someone sends you an approval request, or when someone has approved, declined, or commented on an approval
  • Flag changes: receive notifications when someone makes targeting updates to a feature flag you're following

You can update your notification settings in the following ways:

  • Check the "Inbox" checkbox to receive notifications in your LaunchDarkly inbox.
  • Check the "Email" checkbox to receive emails at the email address associated with your LaunchDarkly account.
  • Check the "Slack" checkbox to receive Slack notifications, if you have the Slack integration set up. To learn more, read Slack.

Enable multi-factor authentication

MFA is a security practice that requires someone to verify their identify through multiple methods before they can access an account. LaunchDarkly supports MFA. Individual members can enable or disable MFA from their profile.

You may be required to use MFA

LaunchDarkly account admins and owners can force all account members to use MFA. If MFA is enabled project-wide, you will not have the option to enable or disable MFA from your member profile.

To learn how to enable MFA from your profile, read Multi-factor authentication.
