I need to set My account link to be # . It shouldn't redirect anywhere.

There's a possible way to set it as # using plugin in module.

But I want to do it in theme. Is there's a way to achieve in theme?

  • Do you need to add "#" for header My accocunt link?

It's usually bad practice to use '#' or 'javascript:void()' in href tag. I would not recommend this, instead you can prevent the link from firing with jQuery.

$(document).ready(function() {
    $(".my-account-link").click(function(event) {

Instead of using jQuery, I recommend to just change the block with custom template.

If you look into vendor/magento/module-customer/view/frontend/layout/default.xml you can see how Magento creates the link.

<block class="Magento\Customer\Block\Account\Link" name="my-account-link">
        <argument name="label" xsi:type="string" translate="true">My Account</argument>
        <argument name="sortOrder" xsi:type="number">110</argument>

As there is no template directly related to Customer Account link, I would suggest that you remove the default Magento block that handles My Account link.

1) Create the file app/design/frontend/[vendor]/[your-theme]/Magento_Theme/layout/default.xml

2) Add the following:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" layout="1column"
        <referenceBlock name="top.links">
            <block class="Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template" name="my-custom-account-link" template="my-account.phtml" before="register-link"/>
        <!-- remove My Account Link -->
        <referenceBlock name="my-account-link" remove="true"/>

3) Create your custom template in app/design/frontend/[vendor]/[your-theme]/Magento_Theme/templates/my-account.phtml and add your content.
