Is this really used the same way in Dutch as in English? I'm always wary when I see the same idiom in two languages, regardless of how closely related they are.

A valid question, but in this case it's 100% the same :-)

I wondered as well, so to be safe I typed "I have no secrets" which was marked wrong... But they have indeed the same meaning.
