Hello,

You can't completely lock a user down because you can't change the permissions for some directories on the server that allow any user to read them. By default, however, secondary users have no permissions to your home directory unless you made them part of your group, so they can't enter it or access its contents.

If you have any further questions or issues, don't hesitate to submit a support ticket.
