Disable Anonymous poll answers?

How does one disable the option to answer poll questions anonymously?

Not questions, I see that option in the features settings of my Slido event.

When answering polls, I see the option below the submit button to answer as myself or answer as anonymous. I checked the event settings and made sure that Name is required.


Thank you!

Yes, this is possible to be done by special customisation. In order to have it done, please contact our support at with the event code. 




Hello Zdenka,
This is good news. We need this as well for customer Slido events.

However I would prefer to enable oder disable the anonymous polls evnet by event by myself.

Is this possible as well?

Hi @Rouven,

At the moment, you cannot disable anonymous events by yourself - only we can do it on the backend. 

Thank you for sharing though! I will pass this on as a feature request.

Let me know if you need anything else :)

Hi Maggie, 

Just out of curiosity, how quickly could Slido support get this done? I’m also interested in disabling anonymous poll responses.

Hi @Ben Ortiz,

All customizations can take up to one week, depending on our team’s availability and the complexity of the request.

Get in touch with our customer care team at with the event code and the request, and they can help further :)
