Organization owners can restrict the ability to change repository visibility to organization owners only. For more information, see "Restricting repository visibility changes in your organization."
We recommend reviewing the following caveats before you change the visibility of a repository.
- GitHub will detach public forks of the public repository and put them into a new network. Public forks are not made private.
- If you're using GitHub Free for personal accounts or organizations, some features won't be available in the repository after you change the visibility to private. Any published Páginas de GitHub site will be automatically unpublished. If you added a custom domain to the Páginas de GitHub site, you should remove or update your DNS records before making the repository private, to avoid the risk of a domain takeover. For more information, see "GitHub's products and "Managing a custom domain for your Páginas de GitHub site."
- GitHub will no longer include the repository in the Programa de Archivo de GitHub. For more information, see "About archiving content and data on GitHub."
- GitHub Advanced Security features, such as escaneo de código, will stop working. Para obtener más información, consulta la sección "Acerca de GitHub Advanced Security".
- GitHub will detach private forks and turn them into a standalone private repository. For more information, see "What happens to forks when a repository is deleted or changes visibility?"
- If you're converting your private repository to a public repository as part of a move toward creating an open source project, see the Open Source Guides for helpful tips and guidelines. You can also take a free course on managing an open source project with Laboratorio de aprendizaje de GitHub. Once your repository is public, you can also view your repository's community profile to see whether your project meets best practices for supporting contributors. For more information, see "Viewing your community profile."
- The repository will automatically gain access to GitHub Advanced Security features.
For information about improving repository security, see "Securing your repository."
