Salesforce enables two types of security namely internal, and external security to protect the data and applications. We can implement our own security scheme in order to protect our data and effectively solve the needs of the organization. Protecting data is a big responsibility, which includes data privacy, data access to the right user, protecting the data from unauthorised users, etc. Salesforce enables us to empower users to do their jobs efficiently and safely.
External Security: The below mentioned ones are the features of external security.

Salesforce Org → Setup → Administer → Security Controls → Network Access → New → Fill in the details → Save.
Steps to remove unknown IP Address:

Step to reset password manually:
