Specific profile users are able to edit Admin user record

Hi,

We have noticed that one of the user (assume a Read only profile) was able to edit Admin user record, but not all admin users. We have other Admin users who has the same set of permission/profile/role/Queues assignments as the other Admin user. 

While debugging noticed that all users under the Read only profile was able to edit that particular admin user record but not other Admin user records. What could be the issue here, please assit.

Thank you in Advance.

Thanks, Samson

I would start by double checking that the permission are the same with (https://perm-comparator.herokuapp.com/).

Then I would look into any sharing rules that include that user.

@Deanne:

Thank you for your response.

I checked the sharing and permission settings, they both are same. They (Other profile users) are able edit only one specific Admin user record and not all others.

Then it is a permission on the user's side not the admin side. So I would look at the sharing rules and other permissions.

Thank you Deanne. There was an manual sharing involved here.

Noticed that Admin user shared his account Manually to another user (who has different profile). Deleted the manual sharing now Read only profiles users are not able to access the Admin user records. But still wondering when the Manual sharing was given to user with different profile (say Profile C), how come users in Read only profiles were able to edit the Admin record.
