Why can a user see the private chatter group even though they are not the member of the group?

Knowledge Article Number 000205588
Description Some customers might notice that a user can see a private chatter group even though they are not the group members

 
Resolution Please note that the below user permissions allow the access to Non Members of the group, check each individual permissions to troubleshoot if something was changed recently on the "user profile" and/or "permission set".
  • “View All Data”—Allows users to view all public and private groups across their organization and its communities. Users with this permission can’t view unlisted group information, unless they have the “Modify Unlisted Groups” permission as well.
  • “Modify All Data”—Allows users to view, modify, and delete all public and private groups across their organization and its communities. Users with this permission can’t view or modify unlisted group information, unless they have the “Modify Unlisted Groups” permission as well.
  • “Create and Set Up Communities”—Allows users to view, modify, and delete all public and private groups in communities.
  • “Manage Unlisted Groups”—Allows users to search for, access, and modify any unlisted group in an organization and its communities.
  • “Data Export”—Allows users to export any data from Salesforce, including private and unlisted group data from an organization and its communities.

Apex and Visualforce: Apex code runs in system mode, which means that the permissions of the current user aren’t taken into account.
