How do I disable Accounts all together?


I am building an app and don't need accounts. I simply need Contacts. What I cannot figure out is how to disable them, so "account" doesn't show up as a required field in my contact page layout.

I don't think this is possible; Contacts must be assigned to an Account. There are various B2C options, though they all just link Contacts and Accounts behind the scenes.

Contacts without Accounts are considered "private" and only the owner and sf admin can view them. What you may want to look into is using Person Accounts instead.
