Logging Into SalesforceA
Log in to your Salesforce account on production (default), sandbox, or a custom host. The host menu allows you to choose the correct host.
  • For iOS users, open the host menu from the gear icon in the upper right corner of the login screen.
  • For Android users, open the host menu from your device's menu button, which may be a physical button or an onscreen button indicated by three vertical dots.
Depending on your organization's security settings, you may be prompted to enter a passcode as an additional layer of security for your mobile device. In the Salesforce desktop browser application, this security setting is managed from Setup in the Connected App entry for SalesforceA.
