Do embedded reports become discoverable outside of the places where I embed the report?

I'm planning to embed a PowerBI report for my organization on an internal google site, and wanted to make sure it wouldn't otherwise be discoverable.

 

My team uses a google site that only folks within our organization have access to, but I was concerned that when I embed a report, it becomes discoverable somewhere else on the internet (like in some PowerBI community or repository of sample reports).

 

As a note, I've already hidden the columns so that "Show Records" isn't available, and it will only display the aggregate numbers in "Show Data" but we don't typically share the raw numbers externally and so I wanted to make sure it wasn't just "out there" in the ether of the internet and would only be accessible where I had embedded it.

@straister If you are talking about using "Publish to Web" this is an insecure way of embedding your report. Which is why here, it clearly states you are exposing your report to the internet. From speaking with colleagues, it would not be difficult for anyone to create a program that searches the context of the very similiar URL paths created for Publish to Web reports to scan and find reports that have been published in this manner.
