    Virus total

    After I uploaded a document to check for security I could not find a place to remove it.
    Is the uploaded information secure or not?

    Depends what you uploaded. Paid subscribers can download it so no, it isn't really secure.

    You can send a support request to delete it here Submit a request VirusTotal with "I have accidentally uploaded something private" as a subject.

    See privacy - Is it safe to upload & scan personal files on VirusTotal? - Information Security Stack Exchange

    Generally it is for checking things you download - not uploading your own private documents you created yourself which you should know the provenance of anyway.
