Why do proxy repls get deleted? (likely a violation?)

Hello. I would like to know why Replits that are proxy sites get deleted, never to be used again? Maybe because they are proxies and those can be used to imitate other websites? Perhaps this is due to violations of TOS? (Like Ultraviolet)

Hey @anon66650261 welcome to the forums!

This is because proxies are against Replit TOS

Use the Service to create a proxy with the purpose of circumventing any firewall or other access control measure;


Our guess is because Replit wants to maintain a good relationship with schools so they continue using terms for EDU and allowing kids to get around restrictions would not help that relationship.

Ok, thanks, @not-ethan. Now I know why the proxies get deleted randomly all the time, because of a violation of the TOS.

Do they not tell you why you repl’s are being taken down?

No, I just saw ultraviolet a month or two ago, now we are in the future. There is no more ultraviolet.
