If you have multiple tabs open and some are connected to a live server for example, it would be nice to be able to sometimes ensure the tab for that session cannot receive any input if you create some lock on it.
I often work on multiple web servers and then while they are busy or change the work I am doing for awhile, I leave the tabs open of course in konsole. rm -rf and many other commands useful in local shells in any of those sessions accidentally selected could be disastrous.. touch wood, its never happened. Right click on tab, lock input or similar would be great.
Screen is useful, yes, but I still think this would be a nice addition.
Requested in several reports and should be easy to add. Confirmed.
FYI, yakuake supports this nice feature.

I found it very useful in older Konsole versions

Konsole: Add read-only mode
This patch adds a read-only option for TerminalDisplays. When active,
all keyboard events are eaten. Mouse input is not affected and works like before.
The setting is not persisted and only lasts for the duration of the session.
VDG input is highly appreciated. Also, I'm not sure if I can just change the rc-files without bumping the version?
- Shortcuts still work
- Paste and drop actions are disabled when readonly
- Switching between read-only and normal tabs works as expected
- Mouse input works like before
