Access not given but Users Able to see the Portal

  Asked By: Owen    Date: Apr 15    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 874

We are using Windows authentication mode to give users access to the Portal site.
However we recently noticed that though some of the users have not been added.
They are still able to the Portal site.

In Site Settings -> Manage security and additional settings -> Change anonymous access  settings, do you have it set to Nothing?

We usually recommend that individual users  not be granted access  to your
SharePoint sites. Rather, use Windows Groups instead. So, perhaps you have
granted some groups access and these users are members of these groups?

See who has access to the entire site  collection (even in the portal) by
typing /_layouts/1033/userinfo.aspx in place of the default.aspx page. Like

Check if particular users  are in local Administrators group on
SharePoint server.
