Are public Repl.it's ACTUALLY private?

I don't want people viewing my repl.it's so i want to be as low in the totem pole as possible. But the thing is, if i tried searching my name but there is no search bar for users therefore i cannot view their repl.it's

So if you dont expose your account, are you actually safe?

But the thing is, if i tried searching my name

To search for a user, you can either click on their name:

which will redirect you to their profile and their repls, posts, comments, etc.

You can also click on your own profile:

and instead of your username, you can type the username of the person you're searching for

But that only works if you know the username.

And when you search on repl talk, if you haven't posted much, chances are you won't appear there.

So for you, public repls are public, and will never be completely 100% private. You can always search for them and find them one way or another.

So if you don't expose your account, you kinda are safe especially if no one knows you, but don't count on that it's not 100% reliable! =)

Good luck! :)
