During account creation, you were prompted to configure some information for your Mention profile such as contact information, company information, and your location preference to name a few. Once you've purchased your Mention subscription, we encourage you to review the information about your Account configurations. The information you configured will be used to notify you about your Mention account so it is important that the information is up to date!
In this article, we will go over the Account tab in within your Settings page teach you how Mention utilizes the information from these sections. The Settings page houses various tabs related to the configuration of your Mention account. Specifically, the Account tab allows you to:

The Profile Preferences fields relate to the display of your Mention profile. For these fields, you can adjust your profile image, change the name of your account, and activate night-mode if you would like.
We encourage you to add a profile photo and to make sure your name is correct on the account especially if you are using Mention with team members. It will allow them to identify your account easily!
It is very important to have your Contact information updated at all times because Mention uses these contact fields to send you notifications about your subscription such as exceeded quota, payment failure, or marketing emails.
Mention will also send you notifications about specific features in your account depending on what you are accessing. Some examples include Daily Mentions, Mention Spikes, and Scheduled Reports.
