Why are protected custom settings still viewable by system admins?

I created a protected custom setting in my managed application and installed it on my Dev Edition org and inserted a secret. However, I can still view/edit this secrets from the UI as a sysadmin. Can you tell me what I'm doing wrong here?

Hi Dan,

Protected custom settings will not be visible in subscriber org.

However, if you have used any VF page or Lightning component to show the custom setting values then yes users can see it.

Howdy Suraj,

If I am logged in as a system administrator I can view/edit/manage the protected custom settings via the Setup Page.
