How to use SharePoint Groups with target audience in SharePoint 2013?

Hello,

I have a SharePoint group named "Secure Site" created and have placed an Active Directory Security Group inside.  I go to the list where I have links as a menu and enter in the Secure Site into the Target Audience field.  When a user views the page that has no permissions to view the menu link, the menu link appears.  The user is not in the Active Directory Security Group, but the link is available and visible.  What I am doing wrong?

Check the user policy for the web app. It is possible they are receiving to the link via that policy.

I am not sure what you mean?  Can you provide some steps on how to use Target Audience?

I have done the following:

1, Enabled Target Audiences for the site, so the field Target Audiences appears on links in a list.
2. Created a SharePoint Group with View Only permissions.  Named it "Test"
3. Placed an Active Directory security group in the SharePoint group.
4. Placed "Test" on the Target Audiences on the item for the link
5.  Had a user who is in not in the Active Directory security group go to the page with the link on it
6.  User can still see the link on the web page

Do I need to have the Active Security Group in the user profiles?

I was able to figure this out by adding AD security groups to SharePoint groups.
