How to Whitelist IP addresses in Salesforce

In this tutorial, we learn to create or whitelist an IP address in Salesforce Lightning and Salesforce Classic.

Salesforce IP Addresses

An IP address is a string of a set of 4 numbers that are separated by periods, for example, 66.231.80.0 is an IP address. These numbers in the set of IP addresses can range from 0.0.0.0 to 255.255.255.255. In Salesforce we used a list of specified IP addresses to avoid unauthorized access to the organization’s data in Salesforce. With the help of these IP addresses users can always log in without receiving a login challenge.  

Salesforce Support occasionally requests a subset range of IPs to allow. It is advised that we should allow the entire list of Salesforce IP ranges for seamless access. Narrowing the range of IP addresses would put you at risk of interrupted access for you and the users.

The Network Engineering team of Salesforce recommends allowing the following IP ranges:

RegionConnections to SalesforceConnections from Salesforce
USA3.228.190.251
34.206.116.149
35.174.143.92
