What is anonymous FTP?

Anonymous FTP is a setting which allows users to login to your FTP server anonymously by not  requiring any login credentials.

This feature may be useful to clients wanting to grant access to a set of files to a large number of people, however this can pose a severe security threat and it is strongly encouraged to leave this feature disabled.
