C++ Access Modifiers are keywords that modify the accessibility of members of a C++ class. C++ language supports three access modifiers.
There are as follows:
C++ Access Modifiers
|private||This is the default access for class members. private members are accessible within the class, member functions of the friend classes.|
|public||public members are accessible anywhere that has access to the object of the class.|
|protected||protected members are accessible within the class, derived classes, and friends of derived classes.|
Class members variables are usually declared as private access. We will bind and allow access to the private variables to the outside world with accessors and mutators functions.
That’s it. We will understand the concepts with examples in the upcoming tutorials.
