Reason for anonymity

Reason for anonymity

  • Anonymity is partly a response to security concerns. During the Black Lives Matter protests, millions of young people downloaded the encrypted messaging app Signal to avoid surveillance. The anonymous hacker group Anonymous made a buzzy return. Other activists used tools for blurring protesters' faces in Instagram stories and moved to decentralised apps.
  • Anonymity can also be ideological. In crypto culture, known as Web3 culture, the idea was founded that transactions can be made online without exchanging personal information. It had a newer norm of showing a cartoon instead of a human face.
