A security token is an automatically generated key that you must add to the end of your password in order to log in to AdvoLogix and the Force.com platform from an untrusted network.
You are offered a security token if you try to access AdvoLogix and the Force.com platform from an untrusted network. Once you have been issued a security token, you have the option to reset this security token at any time.
Security tokens are required whether you log in via the API or a desktop client such as the Data Loader.
For security reasons, your security token is delivered to the email address associated with your account.
We recommend that you obtain your security token using the user interface from a trusted network prior to attempting to access AdvoLogix and the Force.com platform from a new IP address.
How to Reset Your Security Token
Navigate to your name | My Settings | Personal | Reset My Security Token
Note: Clicking the Reset Security Token button invalidates your existing token. After resetting your token, you will have to use the new token in all API applications.
