When an LDS account is registered as a "Friend" , what pages are viewable and what pages are not?

A non-member would have access to the Scriptures and Notes on They wouldn't have any access to Directory or any other "My Ward" type pages.

On the FamilySearch side, they wouldn't be able to see or do anything regarding temple ordinances. They may also be limited in what kind of source documents they may be able to view. The details on that depend on what kind of licensing arrangement the church made with the copyright holder when the records were filmed/digitized.

They can also use the Donations tool, and there are various other sites that require LDS Account login that may or may not provide access to nonmembers (i.e. "friends" – users without a membership record number linked to their account).
