It can mean freedom to express yourself without fear – but there can also be a down side.
Anonymity can create a breeding ground for meanness, where people might ask or say things they would never say to your face.
If you ask for people to send you anonymous messages you might receive things that you don’t really want to see and when sending anonymous messages yourself you might send things you would never say in real life.
These things can come back to bite you and using anonymous apps can leave you open to people trolling you.
