Below will help in restricting user from browsing / accessing other directories on the system. The line below are taken from the man page:

System user accounts normally have the ability to browse the complete filesystem as though they were logged onto the terminal (depending on directory permissions). To block all users from this activity, they can be chroot jailed into their home directories. This means they will be locked inside their own home directories and can't view or access the rest of the filesystem.

chroot_local_user=YES

Note !!       Using chroot_local_user is handy for allowing users to access their "public_html" directories on a publicly shared web server.

Users can also be selectively jailed to their home directories.

chroot_list_enable=YES
chroot_list_file=/etc/vsftpd/chroot_list

Note !!       If "chroot_list_enable=YES", then the /etc/vsftpd.chroot_list file contains a selective list of users that are jailed to their home directories. If "chroot_local_user=YES" is also set, then the entries in the /etc/vsftpd.chroot_list are users that are not jailed; the opposite effect."
