How to lock user to a specific directory?

Posted September 16, 2015 2.3k views

Hi, I’m using Ubuntu 12. I want to know how to restrict an user to a specific directory?
For example: I want to restrict ‘almc’ to /home/cs/dev/server1. How can I do that so that the user is not able to see other files?
