Setting Definition
Assign new records created by Salesforce Sites guest users to a default owner in the org If no default record owner is chosen, the default record owner is the Salesforce Site owner.
Allow using standard external profiles for self-registration and user creation. Using standard external profiles for self-registration, user creation, and updates to user records isn't a Salesforce security best practice. We highly recommend you use cloned external profiles. Review object permissions and field-level security for all standard external profiles before turning on this preference.
