SharePoint allows you to create a personalized version of a web part page. This means you can add/remove web parts or modify some web part properties that allows personalization changes.

So you don’t want your users to be able to personalize the pages? Here’s how.

Central Admin –> Web applications

Select the web application on which you want to apply the changes (sadly these changes applies to the full web app).

Scroll to the bottom of the list of options and observe the last two.

Clear the options “Add/Remove Personal Web Parts” and “Update Personal Web Parts”, to prevent the user personalizing the web part page.

Now the user cannot personalize the page!
