How to keep student accounts from engaging with other users


I am teaching computing at a school for students age 11-18. The senior management team has very strict policies on social- they don’t students to be able to approach or be approached by other people on accounts the school gives them.

Is it possible to enforce this in Replit? I notice I can set up accounts without email addresses- this will be important for the school. But once I give an account to the student, it looks like the student can engage with others through the Replit Community.

Hey, @DalstonHal welcome to the forums.

This is possible if the account does not exist yet. Read this help article:

Hi @DalstonHal!

Students added in privacy mode can view Community (we think there are some great resources there!), but can’t post to it.

You can read more about student privacy here.

Hi, thanks lena and Ethan for your responses. I tested a “student” posting (the “student” was blocked from posting as it was an educational account), and gave this data and your responses to the school. The school approved my request, and I have given my first class on Replit!
