When you brand a [SharePoint hub site](https://support.office.com/article/fe26ae84-14b7-45b6-a6d1-948b3966427f), you can set it so the site branding is applied to any sites that [associate with it](https://support.office.com/article/ae0009fd-af04-4d3d-917d-88edb43efc05). This includes any site theme or site design used by the hub site. This allows you to apply common navigation and branding across a set of sites and use accent colors to emphasize elements that need to stand out.
+> [!NOTE]
+> Custom themes in SharePoint *will not* automatically apply to group-connected team sites that are associated to a hub that has a custom theme applied. For group-connected team sites, you need to manually apply the custom theme.

"Everyone except external users" is a special group that doesn't appear in the Microsoft 365 admin center, and "Company Administrator" acts like a group but is a role in Azure AD.
- **Everyone except external users** All users added to your organization automatically become members of "Everyone except external users". Please note that you cannot change default permissions granted to "Everyone except external users" on Microsoft 365 group-connected team sites. If a group-connected team site is set to "Public," "Everyone except external users" has a default permission level of "Edit." When a group-connected team site is set to "Private," "Everyone except external users" can't be granted any permission to the site. Although the "Site permissions" tab will allow modifications to be granted, a background job will block such modifications to take effect. To change the privacy setting for a group-connected team site, select the Settings icon, and then select **Site information**.

**Company Administrator** This group contains all users who are assigned the global admin role. For more info about this role and its permissions in Azure AD, see [Company administrator](/azure/active-directory/users-groups-roles/directory-assign-admin-roles#company-administrator).

In SharePoint in Microsoft 365, there is also a SharePoint admin. A SharePoint admin can use the SharePoint admin center or PowerShell to manage settings for all sites. Any global admin in Microsoft 365 also has the permissions of a SharePoint admin. For more info about the SharePoint admin role, see [About the SharePoint admin role in Microsoft 365](sharepoint-admin-role.md).

If you have confidential information that should never be shared externally, we recommend storing the information in a site that has external sharing turned off. Create additional sites as needed to use for external sharing. This helps you to manage security risk by preventing external access to sensitive information.
