For G-d, Are my thoughts publics by default?

In Vayikra 25:17 it says:
You shall not therefore defraud one another; but thou shalt fear thy G-d: for I am the L-rd your G-d.
On this pasuk, Rashi explains the proper way to answering someone who says “Who knows whether I had any intention to do him evil?”. Rashi says:
Scripture therefore states: “but thou shalt fear thy G-d”! — He Who knows men’s thoughts, He knows it! In all cases where it is a matter of conscience (more lit., a matter handed over to the heart), when no one knows the truth except the one who has the thought in his heart, Scripture always states: “but be afraid of thy G-d”! (emphasis mine)
G-d is the One "Who knows men’s thoughts".
Also, in Tehillim 94:11, David HaMelech writes:
G-d knows the thoughts of humankind; that they are nothing.
