Yes, security just by making things harder to guess is not truly security. Still, time and time again we have data leaks simply because the IDs are easily guessable, either due to a lack of security on the app, or to use-error (making things public instead of private, se the Parler data dump). I am not saying that it is enough to have he PK hidden, I am just saying that it definitely helps.
