If you wish to prevent an audio sample created by the "Hum" functionality from being publicly accessible, you can use the "Remove" functionality on the audio detail page, that will prevent anyone from listening to it further.

Please be aware that, although we endeavour provide reasonable security for information we process and maintain, no security system can prevent all potential security breaches.
