Safeguard Data in Searchable Objects with Improved Enforcement of Field-Level Security

Now when users search for records, search doesn’t return results for data in restricted fields. Previously, data from restricted fields could show up in a user’s search results. Field-level security is enforced in custom objects and all standard objects, except Cases, Knowledge Articles, and Users.

Where: This change applies to Lightning Experience and Salesforce Classic in all editions.

When: This change will be made on a rolling basis from early February 2019 through early April 2019.
