ThreadGroup class checkAccess() method

  • checkAccess() method is available in java.lang package.
  • checkAccess() method is used to check whether the currently running thread has permission to update the thread group or not.
  • checkAccess() method is not a static method so it is not accessible with the class name (i.e. this method is accessible with the class object only).
  • checkAccess() method is a final method so it is not overridable (i.e. this method is not overridable in child class).
  • This method may throw an exception at the time of accessing a thread group.
    SecurityException: In this exception when the current thread is not authorized to access the thread group when the security manager exists.


    public final void checkAccess();


  • This method does not accept any parameter.

Return value:

The return type of this method is void, it does not return anything.


// Java program to demonstrate the example of 
// checkAccess () method of ThreadGroup Class.

import java.lang.*;

class CheckAccess extends Thread {
    // Override run() of Thread class
    public void run() {
        String name = Thread.currentThread().getName();
        System.out.println(name + " " + "finish executing");

public class Main {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        CheckAccess ca = new CheckAccess();

        try {
            // We are creating an object of ThreadGroup class
            ThreadGroup tg1 = new ThreadGroup("ThreadGroup 1");
            ThreadGroup tg2 = new ThreadGroup("ThreadGroup 2");

            // We are creating an object of Thread class and 
            // we are assigning the ThreadGroup of both the thread

            Thread th1 = new Thread(tg1, ca, "First Thread");
            Thread th2 = new Thread(tg2, ca, "Second Thread");

            // Calling start() method with Thread class object 
            // of Thread class


            // Here we are checking access of ThreadGroup
            try {
                System.out.println(tg1.getName() + " " + "has access");

                System.out.println(tg2.getName() + " " + "has access");

            } catch (SecurityException se) {



        } catch (Exception ex) {



E:\Programs>javac Main.java
E:\Programs>java Main
ThreadGroup 1 has access
ThreadGroup 2 has access
First Thread finish executing
Second Thread finish executing
