Validation Rule to stop users from saving a checkbox

I have a checkbox, donotsend__c, that if checked and saved, the user will be prompted with an error in not having sufficient access to do so. 

The checkbox must not be able to be saved to true. 

Can someone help me with this validation rule? 

Thanks!

Hello,

You can simply put this field in validation Error Condition Formula section. Validation Rule will trigger error message only when cirteria mentioned under 'Error Condition Formula' returns TRUE. In your case, you want to show error message when donotsend__c field is set to TRUE. So, you can create Validation Rule as below:

Another way is to update the Error Condition Formula as: IF(donotsend__c , true, false) 

Both will work.
