My website allows guest/anonymous users to upload content. What is a way that I can allow them to edit this content without having to create a account?

Use a random code in the url (8 letters/digits should be enough) so that they can access their space on both desktop and mobile devices. It's kind of like mailinator.com where you can create fake email addresses. The only thing is that if you use an existing name, you can read the content of that user. Maybe that's ok for your use case?
