For security purposes, when you want to access the Salesforce instance from a different location or different computer/ mobile/ tablet, it requires a Verification Code that has been sent to the mobile number or email to the user.

To overcome the problem of the verification code, Salesforce provides a solution ie. Whitelisting the IP addresses. In Salesforce by Whitelisting your IP address, you will allow all the devices to log into the Salesforce org from that IP address if the proper username and passwords are used.

Here in Salesforce, they are providing us two smart features of Whitelisting the IP Ranges as per the company’s need:

  1. Globally Whitelisting IP ranges for the whole Salesforce Org irrespective of the profile
