I want to create a group of users in a site collection. The group should only be for user with restricted permissions. The users in this group should literally be not able to view any page in a site collection. Lets call it a "blind user".

What I done yet: I have created the group and dont apply any permissions in the creation window. I have added a user to this group. I tried to view a few pages in the SiteCollection but he always the permission to view this page.

Is it possible to create a group of user like that and how whould it be done?

    This might not work if a user is also added in another group with higher permissions Commented Mar 22, 2017 at 9:29
  • @KushalBhabra there are some groups in which "Everyone" is in the group and has permissions to view all the pages. Is it possible to force a user to only use one group?

If there's permitted group with "Everyone" in use you cannot deny access from specified users.

There's Deny option on Web Application level but not on site collection or lower level.
