Are respondents on google form anonymous to me, the creator of the survey?

I have created a survey and I want the respondents to be anonymous to me so they answer honestly.

Why does it still require respondents to sign in to their Google account? Even if it is anonymous, to respondents it does not make it seem anonymous...

Is there any way to have a google form that does not require a sign in?

Hi Jessie,

Forms created inside G Suite domains can be set to harvest email addresses or be required to be signed in. A Form created outside the organisation would be fully anonymous.

It also depends on the questions you ask. You can extract a single survey and then based on the answers work out or narrow the possibilities.  So it depends on the demographical data collected in the survey.

You will run afoul of laws, both US and international, if you attempt to extract the identification of a survey respondent if it is supposed to be anonymous.  DO NOT do this.  It taints all anonymous surveys.

Agreed you should be respectful of promised anonymity, but I don't think there are any laws in the US that criminalize trying to find out who took a survey after the fact. That assertion is also as false and misleading as tricking people into giving up personal information.
