1) Go to List setting 2) Click Advanced Settings 3) change "Read access" to "Only their own" 4) then change "Edit access" to to "Only their own"

so it fix your problem ?

also create column "assigned to" and click "Modify this view" then go to Filter where you find "Show items only when the following is true:" and set "assigned to is equal to [Me]".
