- Stop Inheriting Permissions
As a user you always have a way whether you should inherit that set of permissions as Parent or you should have something of your own.
In this case if you want a site that should not allow the parent users to access, you can click on “Stop Inheriting Permissions” and once you configure it, the users of the parent site will not be able to access your site.
- Check Permissions
Check Permissions will help you to know what level of permission a following user is having either directly or through a group.
So for example if I check my permission as in the screen below.

Here it was Permission Settings in the List & Document libraries. Stay tuned, there is a lot to come.
Keep learning, Cheers!
