Secrecy is the condition of hiding information from others. That which is kept hidden is known as the secret.

One may have to lie in order to hold a secret, which might lead to psychological repercussions.

The alternative, when asked about something, declining to answer, may suggest the answer and may therefore not always be suitable to keep the secret. Also the other may insist that one answers the question. See also Don't ask, don't tell.
