    Hi Aditya,

    Owd Stands for Organisation wide default, and it is used for record-level security.

    Public Read/Write/Transfer (only available of Leads and Cases)
    Public Read/Write: All users can view, edit, and report on all records(Given that they have object-level permission).
    Public Read/Only: All users can view and report on records, but only the owner, and users above that role in the hierarchy, can edit them.
    Private: Only the record owner, and users above that role in the hierarchy, can view, edit, and report on those records.

    OWD : Organization Wide Default.

    It is the baseline level of access to data records for all users in an organization and specify which records can be accessed by which user and on which mode. It is used to restrict access to data.

    There are four levels of access present in OWD:

    • Public Full access : user can view, edit,  transfer and report on all record.
    • Public Read/Write : user can edit,  view and report on all record.
    • Public Read only : user can search the records, view and report on every record but the user can not edit that record.Only admin can edit that records.
    • Private : only that record owner and users above that roles in an hierarchy can view, edit and report on those records.

    OWD stands for Organization-Wide Default, And the default access level for any object in the salesforce development is Organization-Wide Default. it can be used to provide permissions across the business and to restrict access, we can also regulate access at the record level.
