I absolutely understand the need for breadcrumbs and have found them to definitely improve e-comm performance, however I am struggling how much I need in account settings. As the only parents links would be account (dashboard) or home, which can easily be clicked from Nav. The only options is if you have separate breadcrumb link to edit page for adding info but most of that can be handles in pop-ups.
So I am curious to see if you guys feel breadcrumbs are necessary in account?
← back to product x. I can't really answer the question though, because it depends on the context. The consistency can for example be helpful for less technical (elder) people who make mistakes and get disorientated more easily or forgot about the back button of their browser.
