How can I make it so that users can submit Infopath forms to a form library, but not be able to see the contents of other users' forms that have been submitted?

I know I can change their default view, so they can only see 'My Documents' but I can't stop them just changing the view back to 'All Documents'.

Easiest way to configure this for SharePoint Online is to use SharePoint Designer, create a workflow and configure permissions upon item creation. This article provides a walkthrough.

Here is even a better approach. Create 2 list/libraries, Use workflow to copy from submitted location to secure location and delete original. Therefore you do not get into unique permissions at the item level, which is not a good practice.
