They don't want you to tell anyone that you got the information from them. In other words, they had nothing to do with the information given.

It means that whatever they told you, you should just forget it. If you mention it to someone else and it gets around, everyone will be pissed at you, and no one will support your action. Just shut up and forget the whole conversation. It didn't exist.

Friend #1 says something gossipy about friend #3, and says "but you didn't hear it from me." And you repeat the gossip to friend #2, friend #2 asks where you heard the gossip. Don't say you heard it from friend #1.

It means I'm going to tell you some juicy piece of gossip, but no matter what happens you can't say that I told you.

They told you something they weren't suppose to tell. Don't trust them with any of YOUR secrets.

It can mean that they don't want you to tell anyone that she was the one who told you or that person did not start the rumor.
