A prudent person conceals knowledge,
but the heart of fools proclaims foolishness. Bible

“prudent.” See commentary on Proverbs 12:16.

“proclaims.” The Hebrew is qara (#07121 קָרָא), to cry out, to call out loud and clear. The heart of fools is self-centered and foolish. It neither cares for those it may hurt by spreading information, nor realizes it damages itself and its reputation.
