Actually, once the user fill that info, it completely disappear.
instead, I would like to keep showing that info. exactly like in the birthday. something like:

If you change this then you also need an additional option to hide the value from users.

We have some external integrations which we tie to a users accounts by utilising some custom user fields to store things like userids for the external systems - but we set them programatically and never want the user to be able to see or edit them ... the only way to do this currently is to set the field to be "editable only once" which has the effect of hiding the field from the user once it has a value in it.
