My throttling does not seem to work

I added the following as per instructions and tested the api on my localhost with postman but after I can continue past 10 requests as a user within the time frame of one minute. I know the video mentioned something about the cache etc. So I would just like to know if there is anything I may have missed.

REST_FRAMEWORK = { 'DEFAULT_THROTTLE_CLASSES': ( 'rest_framework.throttling.AnonRateThrottle', 'rest_framework.throttling.UserRateThrottle' ), 'DEFAULT_THROTTLE_RATES': { 'anon': '5/minute', 'user': '10/minute' } }
