At Salesforce, Trust is Our #1 Value
Start testing today to manage the impact of upcoming changes to your org. Public Site outage is possible if no action is taken.

What is Changing?
At Salesforce, we understand that the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of your data is vital to your business, and we take the protection of your data very seriously. To further extend the protection of your data, we are deploying several updates to enhance the security of publicly-accessible sites. These changes affect all customer organizations with Salesforce public sites built on Communities, Salesforce Sites (formerly Force.com Sites), and Site.com Sites. Click here for detailed information around the upcoming Guest User Security changes.

When Are The Changes Happening?
The settings will be enforced with the Winter ’21 & Spring ’21 releases. To get the major release update date for your instances, navigate to Trust Status, search for your instance type, and click the Maintenance tab.

Where Do I Start?
Install and Run the Guest User Access Report to quickly assess impacts on your org. The report provides an overview of objects and permissions guest users can access from your public communities. We strongly recommend that you prepare and assess impacts in a test environment first.
