if somebody will tell me how to remove showing of a contract source code from appearing on etherscan? Once a contract is deployed? Is it possible or another contract should be deployed? thanks

  • What source? The bytecode? – Florian Castelain Jan 26 '18 at 7:36
  • Just the the tab on etherscan which says "contract source - Yes." – Tomesupp Jan 26 '18 at 8:34

    The contract source is here only if the creator uploaded it. Your OP sentence is confusing, what do you want to do ? – Florian Castelain Jan 26 '18 at 8:36
  • Yes. I created a contract and uploaded the source code and now I would like to remove it without creating a brand new contract. – Tomesupp Jan 26 '18 at 8:45
  • Then you can't remove the code flr actual contract. – btc4cash Jan 26 '18 at 18:50

It is not possible to do this. Once the contract is verified, it is verified. Furthermore redeploying the contract won't do any good. If the contract has matching bytecode with a verified one, it will be possible to see the source code.

Your best bet is to modify the contract slightly, and redeploy it.
