Can you disable the RS 232 port on a 7960?

Is there a way to disable the RS 232 (console) port on a 7960 phone? A customer wants this disabled for security reasons. If not, where do you change the password on it?

This port is strictly used for the add-on devices like the 7914 SideCar/etc. You can't console into the phone if that is what your customer is thinking and/or worried about.

Yes, I believe that is what they are worried about. Security was the main concern. I read somewhere that it is used as a console port. Is that not true? And, can it be disabled in any way? Or, is it only functional with an Expansion Module? Thanks.
