I created a mobile hotspot and as seen in the screenshot of the mobile hotspot settings.

However, Windows recognizes it as a public network, as shown in the screenshot of the network and sharing center.

How can I change the hotspot to a private network? This is important because I only connect personal devices to it and I have specific firewall rules that I want to apply for private networks. My Windows 10 installation details are as follows: Edition: Windows 10 Pro, Version: 1803, OS build: 17134.648.
