Authenticated user role
Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 3.1. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version of Moodle is probably available here: Authenticated user role.
When a user logs in, they are automatically assigned the role of authenticated user. A user will have additional roles as well as the authenticated user role according to where they are in Moodle, such as student in a course.
By default, authenticated users have permission to edit their own profile, send messages, blog and do other things outside of courses.
