Block Stages on Opportunities window

Hi everyone! so, when you create a new opportunity you can select the stage on the Stages tab. But how can I block those stages? I mean that nobody could change the defined stages, just those ones that are there.

Because right above of the stages you have the Redefine (that´s the literal translation) option. So what I want to do it´s that no one can create a new stage

I attached a photo for a better explanation.

The stages definition it´s not on that window but if you click on "redefine" you may see all the stages and can create a new one. On that window you can deactivate all the fields, so you got the best answer for that. Thanks

Do not authorize all users to access Opportunity stage window under General authorization-->Setup.

Good answer but the stage creation it is not part the authorization window. It can only deauthorize to create opportunities and so but not the stages. Thanks!
