Can I write anonymously on Substack?

When you start publishing on Substack, you can choose to keep private information anonymous.

When you create a publication, you'll be given an option to decide what information you make publicly available on your profile.

Here are some tips to help you get started:

  • Sign up for Substack with a specific email account for your newsletter so there's no attachment to your personal email address or name.
  • If you enable paid subscriptions on your publication, Stripe does require business and personal details to comply with regulations. Learn more about how to keep those details private from your subscribers.

Tip: Check out our Resources post here which has several tips and strategies on how to write anonymously on Substack..
