Why did schools close replit or block it ???
commander5424 (1)

So I have seen that many people are saying that replit was blocked by schools but no one that I know of has said why it was blocked so I hope they fix that problem.

There are a few reasons why schools have blocked Replit

  • There's an online forum (this is the reason why my HS blocked it recently)
  • It's distracting from the more important schoolwork
  • Students can access things that they otherwise wouldn't be able to

There are probably more, but these are the one's I've heard in the past being a problem.

SixBeeps is correct, however most schools don’t block repl.it on purpose. Most schools don’t block repl.it but block the websites created by repl.it (when you code with html5) the reason for this is that repl.it uses a reverse proxy. Schools block proxies automatically so you can’t bypass the restrictions and block repl.it thinking it’s a proxie.

that's their choice probably. They think it is harmful.

They did that because Repl is pretty much a security proxy in general. If this helped you, then Your Welcome.
