@CT2224 Hi,
Yeah, I know.
The main part of making a Discord bot is storing the tokens.
The Repl.it also has the ability to keep your tokens safe and secure only when you create a file called .env and save the data there.

No one can access it even when they Fork or Download the Repl.
Read this docs for more info:- https://docs.repl.it/repls/secret-keys

That's it
Thanks!

Hope this helps!

use an .env file, @RYANTADIPARTHI suggestion will not work

Just use a .env file, i do not think you need to encrypt it
