log in page first name value is nil

I am using windows laptop with rails 4. I created sign up page using devise and added variables like first_name last_name and profile_name which are asked for the sign up. But when i run the rails console and search the users i find that these three variables are nil even though they were assigned a value during sign_up. I cannot add protected attributes gem file because it gives error during sign up in rails 4. What should i do so that the values are stored permanently in these variables.

ok if you are using rail 4 then go to your controller and find params.require(:user).permit( after the bracket add : :first_name, :last_name, :profile name

hope this works for you. if you are satisfied then do rate the answer. regards
