I can’t.

Hey @LuisAFK!

Thank you for reporting this. I will send this to the team and will let you know once I have an update.


We believe we found the cause of this issue. As a workaround, can you try logging out and logging back in using GitHub SSO to see if you are then able to create private Repls?


Still can’t, says I have to upgrade.

Thank you. We will take another look.


I apologize for the delay on this. We recently sent out a fix, so please let me know if you are still seeing issues!


I just updated the app and the issue still persists.

Sorry about that, I’ll flag this to the team again!


My apologies, I forgot changes to the mobile app follow a discreet release schedule. Keep an eye out for the next mobile update, and once you’ve got it, give it a final check to make sure everything’s good to go!


Just updated and it works, thanks!
