You can find Settings under the user icon in the top menu bar.
In the Profile tab, you can set a profile picture, specify (and update when needed) general information like your full name, username, email address, gender, add a brief description about yourself, select your timezone, time format, and preferred languages.
In the Preferred languages section, select the languages you know. Selected languages will have priority while displaying the projects’ target languages list.
Set up Private Profile to hide Projects and Activity tabs from other users visiting your page.
To make your profile private, follow these steps:
For security reasons, we cannot delete an account on behalf of the user. You must have access to the Crowdin account to be able to delete it.
To delete your account, follow these steps:
Once you remove your account, your projects and account settings are removed permanently and are not recoverable. The translations you made (comments, terms, and votes) stay as they were and appear as added by a Removed User.
In the Notifications tab, you can enable notifications you’d like to receive and disable the ones that require less attention. You can select the types of events in Crowdin, channels to receive the updates, and set notification rules for particular projects.
There are three channels Crowdin can send notifications to:
You can enable the desired channel by selecting the checkbox under the channel’s name, either in-app, email, or Slack. Customize notifications for each of the channels. Select the checkboxes next to the events you’d like to be notified of.
To be able to select Slack as a notification channel, set up Slack integration. First of all, click Connect Slack and authorize the connection with Crowdin on the Slack side. After the simple set up, you’ll be able to select notifications to get via Slack.
By default, Crowdin will send you updates on the new events happening in Crowdin via email and notify you in the app. You can change notification settings anytime.
To disable notifications, clear the checkbox next to the notification type. You can also clear the checkbox under the channel’s name to disable all notification types. Once all the boxes below are disabled, you won’t receive notifications via this channel.
You can also configure notification preferences on the project level:
Global: Notifications selected for global settings.
Mentions only: Only when @mentioned.
Mute project: Turn off notifications.
In the Password & Connections tab, you can change your password, set up the two-factor authentication, set up OAuth connections with Facebook, Google, or any other single sign-on providers, and check out the sessions list.
In the Password section, you can change your current password.
In case, you registered via Facebook, Google, or any other single sign-on provider, add another way to log in by creating a password for your Crowdin account.
Activate Two-factor authentication to ensure an additional level of security for your Crowdin account. Every time you log in, along with username and password, you will use an authentication code.
To enable Two-factor authentication, follow these steps:
In the OAuth Connections section, you can connect your Facebook, Google, Twitter, GitHub, or GitLab accounts to be able to log into your Crowdin account with one click.
In the Sessions section, you can review the list of devices (including the location, last activity date, IP address, browser, and operation system) that have logged into your Crowdin account.
If there are any sessions you don’t recognize, you can revoke them by clicking Revoke on the specific session. Alternatively, you can revoke all but the active session by clicking Revoke All.
In the API tab, you can generate personal access tokens needed for authorization while working with Crowdin API v2. To create a new personal access token, click New Token, in the appeared dialog, specify the token name and click Create.
If you use Crowdin API v1, you can find the Account API key required for making API requests in the Account API key section.
In the OAuth Applications tab, you can create an OAuth app that could be used to make authorized requests to Crowdin API or as a Single Sign-On service.
Read more about creating OAuth App.
In the Beta Features tab, you can select the Enable beta features option to test new experimental features.
Security Log tab lets you track important events (including event type, used device, IP address, and date) that happen with your Crowdin account.
Security log includes events like logins, password changes, username changes, and others.
Crowdin asks you to confirm your password before you can perform any of the sudo-protected actions. They include creating/changing your password and email, connecting/disconnecting SSO, enabling/disabling two-factor authentication, creating personal access tokens, and deleting your account.
After you’ve confirmed your password, you’ll be able to perform the sudo-protected actions without additional re-authentication within the next five minutes.
