Disable Person Accounts feature
|Knowledge Article Number||000222040|
|Description||Can Person Accounts be disabled?|
|Resolution||Before Support can enable the Person Account feature in any org, there are a list of implications that we ask administrators to agree upon. One of these implications is that once the feature is enabled, It cannot be disabled.
Although the feature cannot be fully disabled, you can however remove the Person Account record type from profiles. Removing access to the Person Account record type, will prevent users from creating new accounts using this record type.
