Can you change other people's codes if they're public?

If someone makes their code public, does that mean you can change it? Also, if that's the case how do websites prevent this from happening? Sorry if it sounds dumb. I'm new to coding. Lol.

Cali if you're referring to sololearn's public code, you can't change someone's code (only moderators can) but if the code is open source on github, editing the code is possible.

Cali, No, you can't permanently change the actual code for someone else's website BUT you can temporarily change how your browser views that website 🤓 It's a fast, fun way to learn HTML and CSS! Peak behind the curtain of your favorite sites and see how they're put together 😄 https://hackernoon.com/how-to-temporarily-hack-html-and-css-with-any-browser-on-any-website-44e741d955f5
