Company accounts are intended for organizations and businesses. For company accounts, we require greater verification to confirm that you have authorization to set up the account for your company. Individual accounts are usually appropriate for a single developer working on their own.

To change other details, select the gear icon (near the upper right corner of the dashboard) and then select Developer settings. In the Settings menu, select Account Settings.
