Watching categories notifies you of unlisted topics

So I am watching every category and I am notified of an unlisted category. Unlisted topics are not supposed to be shown to the public, but it is in this case for some reason. It had reminded me of this hidden topic which is not supposed to be shown to the public.

No, that’s expected behaviour. Unlisted removes it from topic lists and search, but will still generate a notification when created if someone is Watching or Watching First Post for the category - and is still accessible to people who have a direct link to it.


So, is that how it works?

Yes, it’s behaving as intended

If a moderator wanted to prevent access they can always convert to PM or recategorize it.
