This text is providing instructions on how to access your profile screen after authenticating.
Authentication refers to the process of verifying the identity of a user or system. In this context, it likely means logging in with a username and password.
The main homepage refers to the starting page of the website or application being used.
"Start Hacking" is likely a button or link on the homepage that initiates the login process.
The profile screen is a page that displays information about the user, such as their name, profile picture, and any settings or preferences they have set.
If the user is not automatically taken to their profile screen after logging in, they are instructed to return to the main homepage and click "Start Hacking" again. This should redirect them to their profile page.
