By default, anyone can see your profile and posts on Pictma. You can disguise yourself by not using images personal to you (yourself, pets, friends, family, etc) in your profile picture and choosing a username that does not include your given name.
You can also choose to post anonymously so that no other Pictmer can tell the post came from you.
Things to keep in mind about posting anonymously
Anonymous posts you share to social networks may be visible to the public depending on your privacy settings.
You can take your anonymous Pictma post and share it in other social media platforms. While your followers in other accounts will be able to see what you have shared. They will not know the original posting came from you because the username will be anonymous.
IMPORTANT: Be sure when doing this not to include yourself in pictures, descriptions, and comments to ensure your anonymity.

- Keep in mind that sharing your Pictma anonymous postings of a photo or video to a social network will only remain anonymous as long as you do not share that the original post in Pictma came from you.
Pictma is a fast, safe, and easy way to share your voice for how civil leaders act in your neighborhood.
- Consider the context
When you see an upsetting post, caption, or comment on Pictma, consider the larger conversation it may be connected to. Step back and determine the context of the post. Many people use Pictma in ways that are specific only to our service, which can create some confusion when something is taken out of context. Have you checked hashtags associated with the post? It’s possible that the post is part of a trend or may be referring to something that’s not obvious. Review all information related to the post or the full profile of the person who shared the post to understand the whole story.
- Think before you comment
When you find yourself in a dispute, stop and think about the effect your next post might have. In these moments, ask yourself, “Is this worth it?” or “What do I gain if I continue to engage in this conflict?” While it’s easier said than done, acknowledging harassment by engaging in harassment yourself can reinforce bad behavior and may encourage the other person to continue their aggressive behavior.
- Block and ignore
When you receive unwanted communication from another person, it’s recommended that you block that person and end any communication. Specifically, this will prevent that person from following you or searching for your profile. Abusive people often lose interest once they realize that you will not respond or that they can no longer interact with you.
