I believe HH's examples are using the Community Edition, in which source 
is available by design.

As with the desktop edition, I believe LC's HTML export allows use of 
stacks whose scripts have been password-protected.

That said, password protection only applies to the on-disk 
representation of a stack.  Once in memory, the algorithms of any 
program made with any tool can be dumped and disassembled.

If you have a need to protect secrets beyond what most desktop apps 
need, consider moving those secrets to a server and accessing them from 
your client app.
