How do I keep a production secret?

I have created a page for a production that is only in development, and as a note on the page it says "Because this project is categorized as in development, the data is only available on IMDbPro" - but I can still see it when I'm logged out of IMDbPro.
Why is that? And is there any way I can change it?
The title is "Tinka II".

Hello Cosmo Film,
IMDbPro is just a reflection of the main IMDb system. Everything about titles on IMDbPro will also be on the main IMDb.

That is not accurate. As quoted above, in-development titles are listed on IMDb, but most details are only displayed on Pro.

Hi Peter,

That has been true for a long time, but lately (in terms of months), I was (happily) surprised that details were also displayed in the standard interface (but I do not know whether IMDbPro show more).

Anyway, to give a poor answer to the initial question, I would say that the best way to keep a project secret is not to enter it in IMDb in the very first place...

I checked some titles and it seems to be very inconsistent.

But the title that Cosmo Film is inquiring about does display the text about data only being available on Pro, as do other titles such as this one connected to Steven Spielberg and Stanley Kubrick:

Not many more details are found on IMDbPro.
