If they are set to Viewer then they won't be able to edit the report.


However, double check the permissions on the dataset(s) to make sure those users don't have the build permission granted.  If they do, then they can still connect to the underlying data and would see the fields/tables that should be hidden. 


This assumes you're not sharing the same content to the same users via an App?  If so, just make sure you don't have "Allow all users to connect to the app's underlying datasets using the Build permission" checked as this will assign them the build permission.
