depends; how did you configure your shares?

valid users (S)
This is a list of users that should be allowed to login to
this service. Names starting with ´@´, ´+´ and ´&´
are interpreted using the same rules as described in the
invalid users parameter.
If this is empty (the default) then any user can login. If
a username is in both this list and the invalid
users list then access is denied for that user.
The current servicename is substituted for %S. This is
useful in the [homes] section.
Default: valid users = # No valid users list (anyone can login)
Example: valid users = greg, @pcusers
