Readonly field still allows changes in Edit mode

I have made a field Readonly both on the page layout and in field-level security selected Read-Only for all users. However, the field is still visible when in edit mode, allows users to enter data in it, and gets saved to the database. What else do I need to do to ensure that this field is view only?

There a profile perm called edit readonly fields that admins have, so if you're testing with an admin account, you'll still be able to do this.

Thanks for your quick reply. This can't be turned off?

You can clone the admin profile and turn it off.
