The access=private tag is generally used in combination with the road network tags, with the purpose of indicating that the road is not to be used by the general public.
Usually used for Private driveways (in the city) and country lane ways, where the road just leads to a private home. Routing programs would be able to detect this tag, and knows to avoid these roads when routing.
