How to make user files invisible to all other users, but visible to admins?

Reddit - Tue, 2016-08-16 18:47

Hi, I am looking for a solution to a problem. We have a system with > 100 user accounts. All of which stored in the /users folder. Currently each users folder is password protected, and accessible only by the user, and 10 admin accounts.

However, All user can see the list of other users (although access is denied by password). Is there a way to make these user folders invisible/hidden or scramble the name, except for the owner and the admin accounts.
