Application Query Security prevents users from running "open find" queries when no search criteria has been entered in at least one of the form filter or QBE fields.
When users attempt to perform such queries, a pop-up error or warning generic message is displayed alerting the users that the query search has been cancelled.
The error or warning generic message can be customized specific to the form within the application.

Application Query security is designed to execute upon clicking Find.
When applications have 'Automatically Find On Entry' selected in Grid Properties|Options, Application Query security is not applied on auto-find invoked upon entry into the form.
Per Bug 32453927 OPEN FIND SECURITY NOT RESPECTED FOR AUTO FIND ON ENTRY FORMS it is functioning as designed.
