You have to login on the admin center with admin accounts.

  • Sign in to Office 365 with your SharePoint Online admin account.
  • Go to the SharePoint admin center.
  • Click User Profiles.
  • Under People, choose Manage User Properties.
  • On the Manage Properties page, select New Property.
  • On the Add Profile Property page, in the Property Settings section, in the Name text box, type a name to be used by the User Profile Service application for the profile property. The Name must be unique, but the Display Name does not have to be unique.

You can follow the below documents for more information. Add and edit user profile properties
