Code Inspection: Method visibility shouldn't be overridden

Checks that the methods don't override visibility.

Overriding a protected method with a public method in a child class makes this method accessible from everywhere. This violates the encapsulation principle and is considered bad practice.

See Method Visibility (php.net) for details.

Suppress an inspection in the editor
