Since, a manager may not wish other users of the organization to know that they are analysing a particular part of the Business. Thus in order to guard report’s data access they can simply mark the required report as Private.
To implement the same just check the checkbox called “Private Reports” at the time of Report creation.
Make all the necessary report configurations such as Report contents, search criteria and save. Report will be listed under the appropriate Category as shown below.
I then logged in with other (non-admin) user and checked the same report Category. I was surprised…!!!!  Report which I had created as (admin) user was not visible to that (non-admin) user. However, users which belonged to the same Manager Level were able to view the report.
Very happily, now I can secure my Report by using this CRM feature.
