Dropping a field in view

Hi, I'm a newbie in MySQL. I live in a MS Access world most of the time.

I want to link a MySQL table remotely using the ODBC connector. I've learned that it's not "secured", but I've no idea what that means. Does it mean the data can be intercepted through cyberspace during transmission?

If it is unsecured, then I would like to only grab the non-critical information from the tables. I don't think it is possible to link a save query (I can be wrong), but I've learned that you can duplicate and link a virtual table which turns to VIEW. Is there a way to drop a column in view? I tried the same SQL to drop a column as you would for a table, but it's a no-go. Can anyone help? If it's not possible to drop a column in VIEW, can anyone suggest how I can accomplish what I'm doing, which is to link a table with certain columns only?
