Force.com Sites Guest User Licenses
By: Nansi Kela On: November 30, 2016
The Site Guest User is a special type of user that you use in conjunction with a Force.com site or any application that utilizes a Force.com site. You won’t see this user in your user list.
You can’t create a Site Guest User or the user profile for this special user the way you create and manage other users.
- The Guest User has no login credentials, so they cannot actually log into your Salesforce instance. They can only see or modify data to the objects and fields according to the user profile.
- You can create up to 25 sites (Enterprise edition), which means you can create up to 25 Guest Users. These users do not count against your purchased user limits, but you do need to monitor the profiles for all of them.

- Registered your Site with unique name and Create New Site.
