Protecting member anonymity

Updated 15 September, 2020

Because Glassdoor wants you to feel safe while writing honest reviews of your employers, protecting your anonymity is one of our top priorities. All members' of our community have the option of submitting a contribution without providing information that could identify them.

Nobody, including your employer, will be able to see your email address, social media profiles, or any other personal information you provide—either in your user profile or your resume.

Here are a few things to keep in mind about your anonymity when using Glassdoor:

  • Any time you submit a company review, interview review, or benefit review, you'll have the option to include your location and job title.
    • These two fields are not required, only the fields with an asterisk (*) are required. 
      • Note: When adding an interview review your job title is a required field. 
    • If you provide the location or your job title, they will be published with your contribution and could indirectly identify you which is why we give you the option to leave those fields blank. 
  • Glassdoor will never post to your Facebook wall or Google account, nor will it display any profile information or links next to your contribution.
  • Resumes uploaded to Glassdoor are not searchable by employers or other users. The only time an employer can see your resume is when you submit it directly with a job application.

If you have already submitted a review that contains information that could identify you, see our Edit or delete my contribution article. It will instruct you on how to remove this information from Glassdoor. 

For more information on member anonymity, see our Privacy Policy.
