By design, the Limited Access permission should be combined with fine-grained permissions. You can use this permission to give users access to a specific list, document library, item, or document, without giving them access to the whole site. However, to access a list or library, for example, a user must have permission to open the parent Web site and read shared data such as the theme and navigation bars of the Web site. The Limited Access permission level cannot be customized or deleted.
Note You cannot assign this permission level to users or security groups. Instead, the system automatically assigns this permission level to users and security groups when you grant them access to an object on your site that requires that they have access to a higher level object on which they do not have permissions. For example, if you grant users access to an item in a list and they do not have access to the list itself, the system automatically grants them Limited Access on the list. If the user also requires access to the site, the system automatically grants Limited Access to the site..
