# Workbot personal connections
By default, recipes perform actions based on the identity & permissions of the credentials used to connect the application.
A sales manager's credentials used in Salesforce connection
Using personal connections, Workbot allows individual users to authenticate themselves before carrying out actions on their behalf in other apps, e.g. asking sales reps to log in to Salesforce before dispatching Workbot to create the opportunity in Salesforce on their behalf.
This ensures that actions carried out by the recipe in the connected apps are done using the authenticated users' identity and permissions.
Personal connections persist, meaning that the user doesn't have to provide credentials every time they use the Workbot command
To enable personal connections, go to Recipe > Settings page and enable Verify user access at runtime. Currently, Workbot only supports personal connections to apps with OAuth2 connections, e.g. Salesforce, ServiceNow, Box.
When this feature is enabled, Workbot recipes will request individual users to authenticate (i.e. login) to the app, from Teams, before carrying out the app action(s).
