Encrypt Standard Lead Fields (Beta)

You’ve already been able to encrypt custom Lead fields, but now you can encrypt standard Lead fields as well. This can help protect personally identifiable information (PII) in the Leads object. This change applies to Lightning Experience, Salesforce Classic, and all versions of the Salesforce1 mobile app.


This beta version of encryption support in Leads is production quality but has known limitations. Contact Salesforce to activate it. To provide feedback and suggestions, go to IdeaExchange.

You can encrypt these standard Lead fields:

  • Name (First Name, Middle Name, Last Name)
  • Email
  • Phone
  • Mobile Phone
  • Fax
  • Address (Street, City)
  • Title
  • Website
  • Description
  • Company
