To change your password enter the new password in the "New Password1" and "New Password2" feilds.
Email and notification preferences can be setup in the User Prefferences.

The group the user belongs to and groups they are interested in can also be configured.

A user picture can be uploaded that is used for news items and other user posts.

If the site has certificate based passwordless login enabled, the user can enter their certificate for this in the Certificate field. The system can be configured to require root CA signed certificates only or to accept self signed certificates. A suitable self signed certificate can be generated using the openssl command like the following substituting the UserName and EmailAddress fields with your details. Normally the UserName is the same as your EmailAddress.

openssl req -x509 -newkey rsa:4096 -keyout gitlab.key  -out gitlab.crt -days 3650 -nodes -subj "/C=UK/O=Beam/CN=<UserName>/emailAddress=<EmailAddress>"
