Profiles and Permissions

Permissions and access settings are specified in user Profiles and Permission Sets. Every user is assigned only one Profile, but can also have multiple Permission Sets.

Permissions control a user’s ability to edit an object record, view the Setup menu, empty the organizational recycle bin, or reset a user’s password.

Access settings control access to Apex classes, app visibility, and the hours when users can log in.

Do not change permissions provided in the profiles and permission sets without good reason, or without a good knowledge of the overall aims of the security model. Granting access to objects, fields within objects, Visualforce pages, or Apex classes not supplied as defaults risks enabling inappropriate levels of access to records that are not intended for general view or manipulation.
