Assigning Portlet permission to a Role

I wanted to assign permission based on roles.

- Logged-in as admin user.

- Created a role named "Test Role". Currently, there are no permissions assigned to the role.

- Created a user named "Katy".

- Assigned the "Test role" to "Katy". Removed the “Power User” role.

- Now, admin user views the public page of the user and add a portlet named "My Test Portlet".

- Admin user sign-out

- Logged-in as Katy and views the home page. The user is able to see the home page with "My Test Portlet".

My question: How the user katy is able to view the "My Test Portlet" as the "Test Role" do not have any privileges. I expect the user should see the error message “Access denied”. Please clarify my doubt.

Note: I’m using Liferay Community edition 6.0.4

Thanks in advance.
