Disable the Details icon

I have a staff directory.  I utilize several PowerApps forms and Views to hide a column containing our employees' Mobile (phone) Number. Everything works... but if a causal user (who should not be able to see the Mobile Phone data) selects a user, then clicks on the Details icon (see blue arrow below), it shows the Mobile Number (see red box) -- it also shows default fields from the Contacts List which are not populated on our implementation (see yellow box)! Can I disable the Details icon? If not, how can I "hide" a column from "busy bodies"?

Thanks,

You can hide the field from a SharePoint form which will then hide it from the quick edit pane. You need to go into the list setting and if you don't have content types showing then you need to go into the advance setting and select "Yes" for Allow management of content types and scroll to the bottom and click OK.

 

Now on the list settings page click on the content type name that the column you want to hide is associated with. the Content Type page will open and then click on the column name you want to hide. This will bring up the Change Content Type Column page and you can select hidden and OK. 

 

Go back to the list settings page and click on the advance setting and select "No" for Allow management of content types and scroll to the bottom and click OK. Now go to your view and verify the hidden field doesn't show in the quick edit pane.
