What does the padlock mean?

What does the padlock do?

In every project there’s a little padlock image under the description. I can click on it and make it look like it’s closed, but I don’t know what it does.

It makes a project private, which does a couple of things - non-members can no longer access the project in the editor so can’t see the source code and they can’t remix it. Everyone can still visit the published project using the glitch.me URL, so it’s just for protecting the source.
