Limited Access ???

A question that I always receive from my colleagues! What is the limited access permission level ?
Users with permissions to access specific lists ONLY, will have Limited Access permission level within the parent site. And this works in the same way for list items and list folders. Remember that a list inherits from a site and a folder inherits from a list and a list item inherits from a folder or a list. The Limited Access permission level cannot be customized or deleted and you cannot assign this permission level to users or SharePoint groups.
For more information about “Limited Access” permission level, I’d recommend usingSPLimitedAccessDiscovery which breaks down why some accounts show up on SharePoint sites as “Limited Access”.
