    hi

    Purpose of the token is to improve the security between Salesforce users and Salesforce.com. when accessing Salesforce via API, [password][security token] should be given to login. The purpose of the token is to improve the security between Salesforce users and Salesforce.com in the case of a compromised account. It ensures, among other things, that if a user’s account credentials are compromised.

     

    Thanks
