    You mean people from the official hacker group Anonymous? Or do you mean it is just symbolic of wishing to remain unknown.

    Yes people from the Hacker group Anonymous wear those masks. I don't know if it's symbolic or anything. I'm sure you can find out why they wear the mask by using google.

    As @Souhi said, the mask that the guy in the picture is wearing is a Guy Fawkes mask. To be more specific, it is mask representing this guy:



    Now, you might be asking, "Wolfgirl, who is Guy Fawkes and why are people wearing his face"? Well, it is a combination of misunderstood history and a fascination with the movie V for Vendetta and Internet memes.

    Guy Fawkes was an English Catholic who was a little more than pissed with how the Protestant monarchy (and the rest of the Protestant country) were treating Catholics (the power of the Protestant Church had been steadily increasing). So he teamed up with a bunch of people and they devised a plan consisting of blowing up the House of Lords, with King James I inside; after that, they would make Princess Elizabeth queen, swinging power over to their side (in an action that would later be called the "Gunpowder Plot"). However, before the plan could be set into motion, Fawkes was captured and arrested (after which, he was tortured into revealing the names of his compatriots and then executed). Guy Fawkes would later become a symbol for protests, revolutions and basically any action that involved "bringin' down the man".

    However, as I explained earlier, there is a problem with this reasoning. First off all, Guy Fawkes failed in his assassination attempt in a not so spectacular fashion. King James not only lived (if the continuation of the Church of England is anything to go by), but the plan was never executed; Fawkes was caught before he even lit a fuse (hell, November 5, Guy Fawkes Day, is a celebration of that failed assassination attempt). Second, while his plan did indeed involve toppling the Protestant Church (and the king that ran it all), that was only to put a Catholic monarch (and a Catholic church) in its place.

    It's a little more than ridiculous to wear a mask that basically says "I'm goin' to bring down the man...by puttin' in ANOTHER man!"

    When you said it was the mask in V for Vendetta, that made me think they originated it. If it actually is based on Guy Fawks, then how did it get associated with that movie? Also, is Guy Fawks even mentioned in the movie?

    It's a symbol of lawlessness/rebellion. Guy Fawkes and V from the graphic novel/movie believed that they were fighting against injustice and a ruthless dictatorial regime. They also aimed to blow up the English Parliament building.

    The whole thing is just over glorified and exploded in popularity after Anonymous adopted it as their face.
