I have broken inheritance to the folder, removed all groups/people and then added a couple specific people to the folder. In advanced permissions it only shows those couple people who can access the folder. But when I do "check permissions" or "manage access" it shows other users are having access because: "Limited Access - Given through the "Style Resource Readers" group". I am one of those users and I can still access this folder even though my name is not listed.

Any ideas on how to truly lock down a SharePoint online folder so only the users listed have the access?

You need to:

  1. Go to Site Settings
  2. Click on the Site collection features link
  3. and Enable the Limited access user permission lockdown mode feature

The Style Resource Readers group contains a Windows security group named NT Authority/Authenticated Users. This means that all authenticated users can display SharePoint master pages and styles for the pages on your site.

Limited Access is a special system permission which SharePoint provides by default.

So the Style Resource Readers group out of the box has the Read permission to master page gallery. And, the Style Resource Readers group does not have the Read permission to lists/folders
