If you want to keep people from looking at your files or directories, you could use the command chmod to change permissions to your files and/or directories. If you run this command chmod go-rwx put_the_path_to_your_file_or_directory_here. This will remove read/write/execute permissions from groups and others so they have no access to your files or directories.
