I've seen a similar question back in the Typekit days but wanted to bring this up now in Adobe Fonts.

I'm just starting to use Adobe Fonts in websites which is great because of the wide array of font choices. However, my clients are a little apprehensive about using them because of how a Web Project is tied to someone's CC account.

So what happens when I design a website using a Web Project that is tied to my account and suddenly my account goes inactive for some reason. Do all those fonts get replaced?

Hi Mhay,

Thank you for reaching out. It looks like you want to know if the account goes inactive for some reasons, are the fonts get replaced?. The Fonts don't get replaced. However, our fonts will stop working. The fonts on the site will go to the default or the next font in the CSS.

For example:

Font-family, Proxima-nova, myriad, sans-serif;

If someone was using Proxima Nova from us, then their account stopped working, the browser would look for Myriad and if that font was installed, it would use that and if not, it would use the default sans serif for that browser.

Please let me know if that answers your question.

Thanks,

Harshika
