Every contact you save in Apollo has a profile page. You can access certain default data about the respective person or company from this page. Some fields are fixed, which means you cannot edit or delete the information that Apollo displays. For other data cards, you have the option to reorganize and delete them as needed.

Refer to the sections below to find out more about how to access a contact profile, the type of information at your disposal, and how to edit default cards.
