How to disable Pardot identity verification

When signing into Pardot from an unrecognized browser you need to enter a code sent to your phone or email. By adding your IP address to Salesforce, you can disable the identity verification challenge.

Multifactor authentication

Multifactor authentication (MFA) helps prevent unauthorized Salesforce and Pardot access. It triggers a second line of defense when someone attempts to login from an unrecognized browser.

Adding trusted IP address to Salesforce

  1. In Salesforce, under the gear icon in the top-right section of your screen, click Setup.
  2. Enter Network Access in the Quick Find box.
  3. Click Network Access under Security.
  4. Click the New button.
  5. Copy and paste your IP address into the Start IP Address field.
  6. Enter the same IP address in the End IP Address field.
  7. Use the Description to inform your team who the IP address belongs to (ex. Lidia Cruz – Marketing).
  8. Click Save.

Note: It’s important to only whitelist the IP addresses associated with your own work-related devices on private networks.



About the Pardot rename

In April 2022, Salesforce announced the rebrand of Pardot to Marketing Cloud Account Engagement. While the rebrand unfolds and the world adapts to the new nomenclature, we'll typically keep the Pardot name in our blog posts.

There are several permutations of the new name being thrown about, so you may see us use any one of them as things evolve:

  • Pardot
  • Marketing Cloud Account Engagement
  • Marketing Cloud Account Engagement (Pardot)
  • MCAE
  • MC Account Engagement
  • Account Engagement by Pardot

With 30 years of marketing experience I've been laser targeted on Marketing Automation for 10 years, seven of those as a Salesforce Certified Pardot Account Engagement​ Consultant, and more recently a HubSpot Expert.

Since I've worked with a lot of clients in various industries I've seen several of the same struggles that are common to almost all organizations (as outlined in this article). With each organization and project that I'm involved with I work hard to solve many of those typical problems, plus identifying and solving sometimes unique and complex issues which often involve cleaning up technical debt from legacy systems and helping organizations set up effective lead management systems using best practices and proven methodologies.

I also love dogs :0)
