Home directory viewable from another profile


I have created another account for someone who will need to use my computer for a while. However, when checking this, I found that my own files are viewable from this second account.

How do I set the permissions so that the contents of my own /home/ag account are not viewable from the new user account? For obvious reasons, I want to be careful about the permissions I set so I don't lock myself out. I think that it is chown 700 /home/ag -R but can someone please confirm that this will do what I want before I screw things up.

Many thanks
