Q: When I go to Setup | My Personal Information, I do not see Reset My Security Token. Why?

A: There are a few reasons why this option is not available in the navigation pane. Note this would also cause a security token to NOT be received via email upon reset of the user's password:

  • SSO (Single Sign On) is enabled for the org: If SSO is enabled, security tokens are not used, so it would not be available as an option.
  • IP Restrictions are enabled for the Profile: This also would result in the disablement of the Security Token.
  • The User's Profile is corrupted: If neither of the above options are true/apply, try editing the profile and then saving it without making any changes at all. This will "reset" the profile, and might result in the token option being available.
  • ID confirmation may have been disabled or if re-enabled a permission was not set correctly. Please have salesforce.com customer support ensure that the appropriate permissions are active on your Org. For more in depth information about Reset My Security Token, please review this link.
