How to upload videos anonymously

Updated March 23, 2017

Uploading videos is easy thanks to several video sharing websites that make the process simple. However, in some cases you may not wish to enter your real name or e-mail address that are typically required to use these sharing websites. If you wish to upload and share videos anonymously, you can still do so by creating an e-mail address specifically for that purpose, and by using a pseudonym or anonymous name rather than entering your own.

Go to YouTube and click "Create account." Enter an anonymous username for your account, a password, and the e-mail address you created specifically for video uploading. You will need to confirm registration through e-mail.

Click "Upload video" and click on your video in the screen. Enter a title and description for your video if desired. Remember to keep any information that might reveal your identity out of the description.

Click "Upload video," then click the link to the video URL once the processing is finished.

Go to Shutterfly and click "Sign up" at the top right of the screen. Enter an anonymous username for your account, a password, and the e-mail address you created specifically for video uploading. You will need to confirm registration through e-mail.

Click the "Upload video" link and click your video file. Enter a title and description for your video if desired. Remember to keep any information that might reveal your identity out of the description.

Click "Upload video" and wait for processing to finish before clicking "Play."

Go to Veoh and click "Join." Enter an anonymous username for your account, a password, and the e-mail address you created specifically for video uploading. You will need to confirm registration through e-mail.

Click "Upload," then "Browse" and find your video. Click "Okay." Enter a title and description for your video if desired. Remember to keep any information that might reveal your identity out of the description.

Click "Add Video" and wait for the processing to finish, then click "Finish."

Tip

Your e-mail address may be visible on these video sharing websites, so it is important to choose one that does not hint at your name or identity if you want to be truly anonymous.
