Is "WebBrowser1.IsWebBrowserContextMenuEnabled = False" enough secure, so client could not get URL address?

I would like to get any confirmation of my question. For now, I'm just testing. So, I have WinForm application, with WebBrowser tool. My goal is to run my own asp.net website for which I would like client could NOT recognize URL address.
Currently, I'm trying to disable mouse right click which works. But, honestly I'm not sure if URL address is enough invisible for clients.
Is there possible that client could get URL address on another way?

Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        WebBrowser1.IsWebBrowserContextMenuEnabled = False
    End Sub

Thank you in advance for answers!

I haven't thought about this, but does the URL show up in Internet Explorer history?

If someone is computer savvy, there is really no way to prevent them from seeing traffic to and from your URL..

They could just use a sniffer/packet analyzer.. like NetMon..
