it helps some times From a theoretical point of view, you only need to test public methods of your instantiable classes (in standard OOP languages). There is no point in testing the internal behaviour because all you want is "which output for that input" (for a particular method, or for the entire class). You should try to respect it as much as you can because it forces you to ask some questions about the encapsulation of your class and the provided interface which may be decisive for your architecture.
From a pragmatic point of view, you can sometimes have some abstract helper classes with no implemented concrete subclass or an abstract class factoring 90+% of its child classes and where it would be too hard to test the output without plugging into a protected method. In those kinds of cases, you can mock a subclass.

around this issue As already Alexander Larikov said that you can't access protected methods from class instance but not only protected methods but also you can't access private methods from class instance. To access a protected method of a parent class from the instance of a subclass you declare a public method in the subclass and then call the protected method of the parent class from the public method of the subclass, i.e.
code :
class testgiver{
    protected function dbConnect($userconnecttype)
        echo "dbConnect called with the argument ".$userconnecttype ."!";

class testprinter extends testgiver
    public function buildquestionarray() // public instead of private so you can call it from the class instance

$tp=new testprinter();
$tp->buildquestionarray(); // output: dbConnect called with the argument read!

hop of those help? I have a Python Clas with 2 methods.
code :
fake_temp = 15
with mock.patch.object(StateOn, '_getTemperature', return_value=fake_temp) as mock_temp:
    result = StateOn().validateTemperature()
    self.assertIsInstance(result, StateOff)

wish help you to fix your issue Yes, if you need to call the SaveData of another class, it needs to be accessible from that class - so public or protected.

help you fix your problem Private Methods
To define a private method, we use the private keyword, which is actually a built-in method implemented in a class called Module. A private method can only be called by another method within the class on which it was defined (or one of its subclasses).
