Question Monitor which users enter my home directory

Hi,

I would like to monitor which users enter my home directory. Is it possible to write a script or code to do this. I donot have admin privileges. I have given read permissions to access my home directory.

Any pointers in this direction is helpful!

Thanks,
Pradeep

Ps: I use the tcsh shell.

I have never heard of any way to do this.
The best you can do, if you're worried, is deny everyone but yourself access to it.
That will keep everyone but you and root out.
