    Provide details about yourself vs provide details of yourself

    Both phrases can be found in google with thousands of results. I still don't understand the difference between those two.

    Which phrase is correct? Or both can be used, just depends on a sentence?

    They can both be used. The first is more common.

    In AmE, "of" would be rare if used at all.
