Within the Personal Settings you can enable MFA, reset your password, modify your personal information, including change a language, and define your email notifications.
From your personal settings you can enable/ disable MFA (Multi Factor Authentication) for your PractiTest user.
Changing your Password
Passwords need to be 8-40 characters long. they’re case-sensitive, and need to include one upper-case letter, one lower-case letter, a number and a special character.
To modify your password you need to type your current password once, and then the new password you want to set twice. If you don’t remember your current password you can use the reset password link available from the PractiTest Login screen
Modifying your personal information
Personal Information is provided by users during their first time they log in to PractiTest.
This information includes the user’s first and last name, the display name used by the system (in grids, comments, history entries, etc), the time-zone used to calculate the local time to display on time-related fields, and the language (Locale) you want to view the system by. You can also add your profile picture (jpg, PNG or GIF) here to appear next to your display name.
If you are working with more than one PractiTest project, take into account that this information is the same for all your projects. Making a modification in one project will automatically be reflected in all additional projects where you are a member.

Personal Email Notifications
Email notifications are personal and per project; each user can set for himself when he wants to be notified and for what specific entities. Entities change notifications will be mailed up to a couple of minutes after the change was done.
TestSets & Runs notifications will be sent either when the test run status was changed or as a digest email of the last 10 minutes with TestSet or instances assigned to the user. Notifications about deletion are sent as a digest email as well.
If you are the user who did the change or the assignment to yourself, then you will not be getting these notifications since they are redundant in this case.
You can activate PractiTest Keyboard shortcuts by ticking the enable box under your personal settings. To quickly view keyboards shortcuts list from anywhere in PractiTest press: SHIFT +?
