Blueprint editor protected variables are not protected.
When you press on an eye, blueprint variable should (i belive) become public and if eye closed it stay proteded, which is not the case right now.
Any blueprint variable, if not market private, can be edited anywhere, which is straight up break all encapsulation security measures.

Toggling the Eye icon only sets the 'Editable' setting in the Variables Details panel. That only effects if the variable is publicly editable on instances of the Blueprint or not. I believe what you are looking for is the 'Private' setting just below that.
Let me know if that helps clarify things or not.
