    You are viewing the form as the form owner that's why it is visible on your end. Try viewing it as guest or as a user (using different browser or incognito mode) and it should not be visible.

    However, if you don't want this confusion and want it to be hidden on both sides (admin or user) then use the Hidden Box field instead. It's under More fields.
