Salesforce Security Token

There are many instances where you’re required to use your Salesforce Security Token, such as accessing Salesforce in an untrusted network and enabling a package in your Salesforce org. For example, if your password is mypassword, and your security token is XXXXXXXXXX, then you must enter mypasswordXXXXXXXXXX to log in.

Each token is linked to a single Salesforce username/password. If you’re already accessing Salesforce remotely, then chances are you already have a Security Token. Salesforce Security Tokens are usually sent from Salesforce via email.


Here’s how to reset and generate a new Salesforce Security Token:

  • Go to Setup> Personal Setup> My Personal Information> Rest My Security Token



  • Click the Reset Security Token button, you will then receive an email containing the Security Token
