I have an OOTB publishing workflow on a Pages Library and I am getting issue on scheduling start date.

When I put future date and time for Scheduling start date and completes the workflow, it immediately start appearing to visitors with changes. At this time I see that Approval Status of the item is Scheduled. This is weird.

I think until the approval status changes to Approved, the pages (Items) should not appear to the visitors.

Do I need to change some condition in Publishing Workflow?
