It means that the index '4' in the collection e.Row.Cells is outside the bounds of that collection. So it throws the error.

Change your code as below

protected void GridView1_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
    {
        if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.Header || e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)        
        {            
            e.Row.Controls[3].Visible = false;            
        }
    }

Instead of handling RowDataBound, you can also hide a auto generated column after binding your GridView. See this code.

GridView1.DataSource = yourDataTable;
        GridView1.DataBind();
        GridView1.HeaderRow.Cells[3].Visible = false;
        foreach (GridViewRow gvr in GridView1.Rows)
        {
            gvr.Cells[3].Visible = false;
        }
