The Difference Between Account Settings and User Settings

Account Settings are configurable settings associated with your account rather than your username. These include your profile, financial information, trading permissions, account alias, base currency and many more. You can have multiple users for one account, but the settings associated with the account will apply to all users.

User Settings are configurable settings associated with you and your username, rather than with your account. These include security-related settings such as password and email address and the Secure Login System, as well as market data and research subscriptions. When you have multiple users set up for your account, each user (username) will have his or her own user settings.
