When writing a review on Glassdoor, you may want to maintain your anonymity for various reasons. While I can provide some general suggestions, it’s important to note that Glassdoor’s policies and features may have changed since my knowledge cutoff in September 2021. Here are some steps you can take to help protect your anonymity:

  1. Create a separate email address: Consider using a dedicated email address that does not contain personally identifiable information (PII) or is not linked to your name. This can help maintain separation between your review and your personal identity.
  2. Avoid specific identifying details: Refrain from including specific information in your review that could directly identify you or the company you work for. Be cautious about mentioning names of individuals, specific projects, or any other details that could potentially reveal your identity.
  3. Use a pseudonym: Instead of using your real name, choose a pseudonym or username that is not associated with your personal identity. This can help further distance your review from your real-life identity.
  4. Consider writing from an off-site location: If you’re concerned about your IP address being traced back to your workplace, consider writing the review from a location outside of your workplace, such as a public library, a coffee shop, or your home.
  5. Be cautious about shared information: Be mindful of the information you provide in your Glassdoor profile. Avoid including details that could potentially lead to your identification, such as your job title, specific dates of employment, or other identifiable information.
  6. Review anonymously: Glassdoor typically provides an option to post reviews anonymously. Check the platform’s features to see if this option is available when submitting your review.

While these steps may help protect your anonymity, it’s important to remember that no method is foolproof. Glassdoor and other online platforms may have their own mechanisms to identify and validate reviews, and there is a possibility that your identity could be revealed through various means. Exercise caution and consider the potential risks before submitting any online review.

Additionally, it’s worth noting that laws and regulations related to online anonymity can vary between jurisdictions, so it’s advisable to consult with legal professionals familiar with local regulations for specific guidance.
