It isn’t possible to make you anonymous during these live MS Teams webinars.  If you feel unable to attend because of this, you can instead view a recorded version of each webinar afterwards.

All the meeting information within Teams is automatically deleted after 30 days, but until that time is up, your name and anything you write in the chat thread will be visible if someone visits the meeting after it has finished.
