Default What's a private app?

I recently installed an app from Google Play and when I go to Astro File Manager to back up my apps it's the only one I can't back-up.

There is no check box next to it like all the others, it just says (private).

I have over 120 apps and this is the ONLY one that says this.

Does anyone have any idea why?

Thank you in advance

Thanks for your reply.
I know there is other ways to back up I just think it's weird that is app is 'private'
And wondered what it actually means?
