Can a community user edit their own contact record?

I've seen few question on the stack exchange it self about community user's editing their own contact record's details directly.

Somehow could't find a reference to a salesforce documentation. Could some one help me to confirm whether the community users can or cannot change their own contact record.

I found below idea explaining a workaround: https://success.salesforce.com/ideaView?id=087300000006tto

and some sfse questions; Community User - Edit Contact Record/Change Account Allow contact to edit own record in customer community



Short answer yes, this is possible. It will require setting up the profile permissions on the Contact to give the field access, sharing settings to set which contact records they can see and edit, normally private.
