By default all the content that is added to the widget will be directly visible for every user. But with the approval flow you can get more control over what content you want to be visible in your widget.

If you enable the approval flow you’ll get an email for every new entry. Then you can decide if you want to accept or reject the item. Only accepted entries will show up in the widget

Enable manual approve

By default the approve flow is disable so every entry that is added by a user is automatically approved. Do disable this auto approve and make it a manual process go to your widget and then in the left menu select Approve. As you can see on the page by default the auto approve is on.
