Private Tokens vs Personal Access Tokens

Github has “Personal Access Token”, Gitlab has both “Private Token” and “Personal Access Token”

Where would it make sense to use “Private token” instead of a “Personal Access Token”?

I would love to know the answer

Private token was like a personal access token, but you had only one, and was also a security risk. Note that I wrote was since private tokens got deprecated in GitLab 10.2
