    giving full control to the user of his folder

    is it safe to do

    chown -Rcvf user /home/user

    cause it changed permissions for a lot of files.

    i mean is it ok that the user can now edit the files he couldnt before?

    thank you

    I think it is ok. After all there are no "system important" files in that folder. Be careful with the -R flag though when using it with chmod and chown.

    3,682's ok to do that. The user should be the owner of all his files anyway.
