Hi Abhays,

Access modifiers are keywords used to specify the declared accessibility of a member or a type.

The following six accessibility levels can be specified using the access modifiers.

  • public: Access is not restricted.
  • protected: Access is limited to the containing class or types derived from the containing class.
  • internal: Access is limited to the current assembly.
  • protected internal: Access is limited to the current assembly or types derived from the containing class.
  • private: Access is limited to the containing type.
  • private protected: Access is limited to the containing class or types derived from the containing class within the current assembly.
