npm profile set <property> <value>: Set the value of a profile property. You can set the following properties this way:
email, fullname, homepage, freenode, twitter, github
npm profile set password: Change your password. This is interactive, you'll be prompted for your current password and a new password. You'll also be prompted for an OTP if you have two-factor authentication enabled.
npm profile enable-2fa [auth-and-writes|auth-only]: Enables two-factor authentication. Defaults to auth-and-writes mode. Modes are:
auth-only: Require an OTP when logging in or making changes to your account's authentication. The OTP will be required on both the website and the command line.
auth-and-writes: Requires an OTP at all the times auth-only does, and also requires one when publishing a module, setting the latest dist-tag, or changing access via npm access and npm owner.
npm profile disable-2fa: Disables two-factor authentication.

DETAILS

All of the npm profile subcommands accept --json and --parseable and will tailor their output based on those. Some of these commands may not be available on non npmjs.com registries.
