How to hide two lines which disclose secured data inside WordPress?

<link rel="alternate" type="application/json+oembed" href="" />
<link rel="alternate" type="text/xml+oembed" href=";format=xml" />

As I understand disabled embed content can be achieved and throws warning 404:

   {"code":"rest_no_route","message":"No route was found matching the URL and request method.","data":{"status":404}}

But is it possible to hide code within WordPress and not possible to be clicked?

What links are you talking about that could be clicked?

Maybe read

Do you have a service configured in those links? (I assume you altered them for this post.)

The simplest way to disable the embeds is by using a WordPress plugin like “Disable Embeds”. However, if you prefer not to use a plugin, you can add the following code to your theme’s functions.php file or a custom functionality plugin

// Disable the oEmbed REST API route
remove_action( 'rest_api_init', 'wp_oembed_register_route' );

// Turn off oEmbed auto discovery.
add_filter( 'embed_oembed_discover', '__return_false' );

// Don't filter oEmbed results.
remove_filter( 'oembed_dataparse', 'wp_filter_oembed_result', 10 );

// Remove oEmbed-specific JavaScript from the front-end and back-end.
remove_action( 'wp_head', 'wp_oembed_add_host_js' );
add_filter( 'tiny_mce_plugins', 'disable_embed_tinymce_plugin' );

// Remove all embed discovery links.
remove_action( 'wp_head', 'wp_oembed_add_discovery_links' );

// Remove the JavaScript used to embed the media.
remove_action( 'wp_head', 'wp_oembed_add_host_js' );

function disable_embed_tinymce_plugin( $plugins ) {
    return array_diff( $plugins, array( 'wpembed' ) );

The above code will also take care of removing the <link rel="alternate" ... /> tags from your site’s header.

I suggest, instead of editing your main theme’s functions.php, consider using a child theme or a custom functionality plugin to add the above code. This will ensure that you don’t lose these changes when the theme gets updated.
Good luck
