I'm using the Field Group module to group fields on my user profile page. I have a number of fields that are only visible to admin users, so I would like to group them together to keep everything organized. I use the Field Permissions module to limit access to the fields to admin users only; however, this module does not restrict permissions for the field groups.

As a result, authenticated non-admin users see an empty fieldgroup. How I deny non-admin users access to a field group that should be shown only to admins?

You are probably using 1.x version of field_group module (which is the recommended version).

This problem has been solved (for most cases) in this issue. You could try the 2.x-dev version or use a simple JQuery script to remove the empty elements.
