Restrict a macro availability based on users group

By default, Confluence allows to add any macro on a page. Is it possible anyhow to restrict such ability based on which group the current user belongs to?

Not natively.

But I've used the secured macros add-on to do it a few times.  See

Hi Nic, thanks for the reply! But I'm not sure that Macro Security is what I need. I'd like to hide a particular macro from the Select Macro dialog (accessible via Insert option while editing a page) based on a group.

Not possible - the fact the macro exists puts it into the select macro dialog.
