Autodir defends your Linux directories for privacy and intrusions
Make your directories invisible and out of reach
When you logout, your home directories are removed.
Unless you are root on the server or use these directories again, others would not see their presence under normal conditions.
Expose them only if necessary
They exist only if needed. Otherwise, they are not shown to you or others.
Whole process is fully automated with help from Linux kernel.
Guard the vulnerable
As Linux becoming more popular, non-Linux experts are needed to maintain them.
Permissions of your stuff changed, next time Autodir will correct them.
Clone your directories by an external command with exclusive access given to them. This is guaranteed to happen while no one modifying files.
The process is fully automated and only root can configure this feature. See docs and there are some limitations to this under some conditions.

If there are two modules, for example autohome, autogroup, two processes of Autodir should be started.
