Carry out an action only if it benefits the self. If the individual Satanist’s central goal is manifestation of personal will to be their own god in their own life, does sharing personal details confer a personal benefit? Unless the individual Satanist seeks to influence opinion or enrich themselves through business, since sharing personal information promotes sincerity and trust, there is no advantage to being transparent with personal information under any other circumstance.

Envious and egotistical Satanists can ruin your life
It is an unfortunate trait amongst Satanists to be envious of those amongst us who rise to notable success, for instance Lucien Greaves has attracted considerable hostile envy from many quarters in Satanism, including the Church of Satan which has increasingly become sidelined by the Satanic Temple in the eyes of the media.

Responsibility for privacy starts with the individual

Either due to ignorance or from personal malicious motive those in authority, including some in Satanism, encourage the notion that there is no privacy, and that the individual should be enthusiastically transparent with their personal information.
