How do I find my security token?

Shell BlackShell Black
At the top navigation bar go to your name > Setup > Personal Setup > My Personal Information > Reset My Security Token.

This is how you use it. If your password is mypassword, and your security token is XXXXXXXXXX, then you must enter mypasswordXXXXXXXXXX to log in. Security tokens are required whether you log in via the API or a desktop client such as Connect for Outlook,Connect OfflineConnect for OfficeConnect for Lotus Notes, or the Data Loader.

I hope that helps!

Why do we need to reset to see what it is? that way we lose all the other apps? doesn't make sense at all!

This answered my question - I guess just because I wanted to create one. By the way it get's email to you.  I think its normal not to show the token for security reasons- you generate one and then use it in the app. Our own software works the same way.

Login to your orgnistaion and Navigate to At the top navigation bar go to <your name > My Settings > Personal  >  Reset My Security Token.

And click on "Reset Security Token".Clicking the button invalidates your existing token. After resetting your token, It will be mail to the user mai ID

I hope this will help.

I thought I'd provide an answer to this since I just figured it out myself.  I had the same problem.  It turns out the "Reset Security Token" link will not appear, if your user "profile" has ip address restrictions.  I was made an admin, and the admin profile had the restricted range of to, which I guess allows access from anywhere, but as a side effect it turns off that reset security token link.  The idea is, security tokens are not required for api calls made from "trusted" networks (i.e. ip addresses within the restricted range).

Turns out, I'm using a 3rd party component that requires the use of a token!  So I'm going to have to switch to a non-admin profile. (and/or slap the guy who decided to set our trusted ip range to the entire universe!)

I guess the UI has changed a bit. I had to go to "My Settings" instead of "My Profile"
