Glassdoor takes privacy and anonymity seriously, and they strive to protect the identities of individuals who contribute reviews. By default, Glassdoor allows users to post anonymous reviews, meaning that the reviews are not directly linked to their personal identities. However, Glassdoor does collect information about the reviewers to ensure the authenticity and integrity of the reviews.

While Glassdoor takes steps to protect user anonymity, it is worth noting that there are potential scenarios where the identity of a reviewer could be revealed. For example:

  1. Legal Requests: In response to a valid legal request, Glassdoor may be required to disclose the identity of a reviewer.
  2. Employment Verification: If an employer requests verification of a review left by an employee, Glassdoor may contact the reviewer to confirm the details of the review. However, Glassdoor typically seeks the reviewer’s permission before sharing their identity with the employer.
  3. Terms of Service Violations: If a reviewer violates Glassdoor’s Terms of Service, Glassdoor reserves the right to take action, including disclosing the identity of the reviewer if necessary.

It’s important to be aware that while Glassdoor aims to protect reviewer identities, absolute anonymity cannot be guaranteed. If you have concerns about privacy or specific circumstances regarding your review, it may be beneficial to review Glassdoor’s privacy policy or contact their support team for more information.
