How to Identity a Reddit user:
You need to stalk the profile of the Reddit user to find his real identity. Reddit users often don’t post much or anything related to their actual lives on their Reddit profiles. But if you look at their posts very carefully, you may find some clues to know about their real identity or real names in some cases.
Check as many posts as possible to find the information that can help you identify his real or actual profile. However, you may not find anything that can provide you clues about the person’s real identity as sometimes users are very much concerned about their privacy and are very careful about it.
