Why is my user able to copy a report if s/he has only Viewer access to the report folder?

Knowledge Article Number 000220174
Description I have set one of my users "Viewer" access on my report folder.
Why is that s/he is still able to customize and save a copy of the report included in the folder?
Resolution Look into the profile assigned to that specific user.
It might be the case wherein the permissions “Create and Customize Reports” and "Edit My Reports" have been enabled.

The Viewer access to a report folder provide the visibility (access) to the report.

As per  the documentation about Cloning or Editing a Report, the “Create and Customize Reports” permission allows the end user to see the "Save As" button, while "Edit My Reports" allows the user to save the report on the folder where it has been given access to.
