changing the privacy settings of an existing repository

I’m new to GitHub, and I want to use it to create a repository which will be private, but which I may later decide to make public. Is this possible, and if so, how?

If not, what would you suggest I do to achieve a similar outcome?

Thank you very much in advance.

Yes, it is possible to change a repository from private to public or vice versa. You can learn more about that in our help documentation on changing a repository’s visibility.
