I want to set my attribute as hidden in QGIS.

I have tried Layer Properties -> Fields -> text edit -> Select Hidden. It is just information.

In hidden attribute will be invisible - the user is not able to see it's contents

What you did is the correct way to hide the field. In the widget menu select the hidden value, then press OK. enter image description here Then you should see the label Hidden in the field attribute column named Edit Widget enter image description here

Apply and close the layer properties window. If you still see the field you hid in the layer attribute table, close it and open it again, it should be gone now.
