User profiles in Moodle 3

Each Moodle user has a user profile and a profile page. Depending on how profiles are configured by the Moodle administrator, profile pages include details about the user, such as location, badges, course details, forum activity, and blog posts.

Administering user profiles

Only an administrator can specify which user roles are displayed in profiles. These settings are configured in Administration > Site administration > Security > Site policies. An administrator or manager can specify which blocks, such as Reports and Badges, are displayed on the default profile for all users. Default profiles are configured in Administration > Site administration > Appearance > Default profile page.

By default, users can customize their own user profiles, including adding blocks. Administrators can prevent this by going to Administration > Site administration > Users > Permissions > Define roles and clearing the manageownblocks check box for the Authenticated User role.
