I have created a group named Readers and added three users readera,readerb,readerc. The share folder created like /home/Readers/readera,/home/Readers/readerb and /home/Readers/readerc. Here how can I force all the user to view only their folders not others??

Using standard Unix permissions – chmod -R go-rwx /home/Readers/reader* to remove group/world access.
