Protected posts are visible in RSS

Hi! I just made my first locked post, which should be visible only to backers at $10 or higher. Works great on the website! However, the entire post is visible in Feedly and other RSS readers. I scoured the settings page and see nothing about locking posts in RSS. I just assumed they were! What am I doing wrong?

Thank you!

It may be that you have “Full text” choice selected for “For each post in a feed, include” option in Settings -> Reading section in your WP admin. This will cause full text of the posts to be shown in feeds. Choosing “Summary” instead should handle that problem.

Got it, thank you! I didn’t think to check the feed settings themselves.
