Control Access to the Organization


Access to organization (Salesforce User Management) can be restricted by four means:

  1. Allowing only authorized users to access Salesforce
  2. Setting Password Policies
  3. Restricting IP ranges for Users.
  4. Restricting Login Hours for Users.

User records in Salesforce can’t be deleted, it can only be deactivated or frozen.
