No, that's not what the "protect" you see in options does. If you want to enforce a password to *open* a document you use the password option in the file->save dialog. Using that makes you enter a password to open the document. 

That other protect is to enforce how changes are allowed. You can set the document to be read-only or, the default, you can force that document can only be in track-changes, i.e. you can edit it, but what you edit is recorded as a change from the original. Using edit->changes->record to try and disable that should prompt for the "protect" password
