Hi, I'm on the team that worked on this UI, and we put some thought into what this text should be. We didn't want to say "alone" or "by yourself" for the very reason you point out. We considered, "Everyone has left the document," but that felt negative (connotates abandonment). Ultimately we landed on, "Its just you here now" as being neutral, maybe even fun. As in: It's just you here now, so you can do whatever you want! The main thing is that we definitely want you to know when there is and when there is not someone potentially seeing your every edit.
Maybe we should go further with this text... "Write like there's no one watching"
