I want to be able to do this, so that no one who happens to look at my screen gets to know my reddit username and then have a look at my posts on reddit - thus removing my anonymity.


Install the Reddit Enhancement Suite (RES) browser extension, then in Settings (gear icon at the side of Reddit preferences link) » Account » Username Hider » set to 'On'.

For those using custom CSS with your browser the following CSS snippet will hide your username for both the old and new designs.

/* Hide Reddit username new design (2018-) */
div[class*="s1ilcdod-18 dsBbYg"] {
    visibility: hidden;

/* Hide Reddit username old design (pre-2018) */
span[class="user"] {
    visibility: hidden !important;
