I'm trying to prevent users from changing their photo and personal information in mysites.
I go to SharePoint Central Admin > click Manage web applications > click the mysites web app > click User Permissions in ribbon > then Uncheck "Edit Personal User Information".
I click Save and go back to mysites and I can still edit this information. I even recycled the app pool mysites lives in, but no dice.
Is there another way to do this that works?
TL;DR? I was not able to edit user profile properties in IE11, switched to chrome and it worked.
