Duplicate Management uses Data.com technology. However, a Data.com license is not required to use this feature.

New orgs come with standard account, contact, and lead duplicate rules, which define what happens when you try to save a duplicate record. Each standard duplicate rule has a corresponding matching rule that determines how two records are identified as duplicates.

No setup is required for new orgs, but you can always turn off these rules at any time or create custom rules.

If you try to add a duplicate record, the standard duplicate rules are set to show an alert. As part of Duplicate Management, you can easily create a custom report type to review duplicate records that were added.
