There are a lot of people who want to write about some “TYPE” of content but they never did that because they are in the fear that maybe there relatives or family members or their loved ones could find about it and they will be embarrassed. There are people who want to publish a certain type of content on their Medium profile but because of Judgement, or due to other reasons can’t do that. In this article, we will discuss some ways that could help you to publish anonymously on Medium and make money writing on Medium.

Can you publish anonymous posts on Medium?

You can’t publish anonymous posts on Medium but there is a way to do that.

If you are thinking that you will write a post on Medium with your real name and publish it and nobody will know, then you can’t do that. Quora, which is a questions & answers based site gives you this opportunity to write anonymous answers because Quora doesn’t allow two or more accounts. On Medium, you can make two or more accounts and your profile name should be anything of your choice like a nickname.

There are a lot of my posts on Medium profile that I would never post if I knew that there is anything like you can post anonymous posts on Medium. Now, I am happy that I know that I can create two or more profiles on Medium and at the same time can make money through both these platforms if I joined the Medium partner program.

There are two ways through which you can write on Medium anonymously:

  • The first way is through making another account on Medium.
  • The second way is through using an unlisted feature on Medium.

Method#1: Creating another Medium account:

I have multiple accounts on Medium and you could do the same. To be exact i have three accounts on Medium and two of them are in the Medium Partner program. I want to be an erotica writer but lose the motivation after publishing three posts on Medium.

One thing to remember here is that if you made three accounts on Medium with the same IP or laptop and one of your Medium accounts is suspended, then Medium might suspend your other accounts too and you wouldn’t be able to make an account on Medium again with the same IP.

How to create multiple accounts on Medium?

  1. You can sign-out from one account and make another Twitter or Gmail account and make another one.
  2. Go to the Medium Partner program and enter the same email you have used in Joining a Medium Partner program in other accounts.

There are a lot of benefits of joining the Medium Partner program but at the same time, it is great to buy Medium membership in order to read unlimited articles for free and interact with the likeminded community. One of the great ways to grow your following on Medium is to leave thoughtful responses on other writers' stories and having a Medium membership could help you in that in-large.

Method#2: Through Medium Unlisting feature.

Through the unlisting feature, you could publish posts anonymously but you wouldn’t make money through your articles.

How to unlist your story on Medium?

  • If you want to unlist a story that is already published or want to publish it anonymously then you have to click on the three horizontal dots and click Edit.
  • Click on the three horizontal dots again if the story is already published and for a draft, you have just to start from here.


  • In the drop-down menu, click on "Manage unlisted setting" and then a menu will appear where you will be asked that "Make this story unlisted" click on "Yes" and you are done.
  • Now, your post will be unlisted and anyone could only read it if they have the link of your unlisted story.
