Hi, @Aruna Virajith Chandrasekara! Welcome to the community! 

This is a workspace setting. If you set it to private, the workspace won't be visible to anyone who doesn't have explicit access to it. So, when someone who doesn't have access to this workspace tries to access it, they will see a page like this:

However, if you remove the “Keep this workspace private" option from your workspace > Settings, if someone who doesn't have access to this workspace tries to open it, they will see a page like this:

With that said, even if the workspace is not set as private, if the repositories are private, only users who have access to these repos will be able to access them. 

In case you would like to test it, you can open an incognito window and try to access your workspace. If you mark your workspace as private and you try to access it from a browser in incognito mode, you should see the “You were never here" message. 

I hope this helps, but do let me know if you have any questions. 

Kind regards, 
Caroline
