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?


Even though they're anonymous users, generate a unique id for each user from the client side itself and save it in cookies with a long expiry.

Whenever someone uploads a file save that unique id along with the file. Now you can allow users to edit the file if its owner is the same as in the cookies.

You can use uuidv4 or something for unique ids

"who uploaded which content" that is what the author of this question wants!
