* Batman occasionally uses the "Matches Malone" persona as an additional secret identity to infiltrate the criminal underworld.

* Batman Franchise/{{Batman}} occasionally uses the "Matches Malone" persona as an additional secret identity to infiltrate the criminal underworld.
* Much like his mentor [[ComicBook/RobinSeries Tim Drake]] uses the additional secret identity of Alvin Draper for infiltration. Eventually, due to the League of Assassins interfering when he was trying to borrow evidence from a museum in Germany making "Alvin" an internationally wanted art thief and Dick blurting out that he was Robin directly in front of Two-Face, this id becomes rather dangerous to use.

* Soldiers serving in NATO peacekeeping missions in Europe are heavily encouraged to use burner phones and create temporary e-mail and FaceBook accounts under aliases before communicating with their loved ones back home via SocialMedia to prevent cyber attacks from the enemy against them and their families. Numerous soldiers who didn't reported death threats to their families back home via e-mail and telephone, and even a few cases of identity theft.

** So far, along with Daredevil, ComicBook/SpiderMan is one of the few characters in the setting to work at keeping his identity a secret from the public, and Tony is the only one in ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'' to have traced it to nerdy high-schooler Peter Parker. Part of his reasoning is that he doesn't want his aunt May to be worried about him and "freak out". He's quick to web Tony's hand to his doorknob right in his own bedroom when the prospect of outing his exploits comes up, and it's implied by the end of ''Civil War'' that it's still his secret to keep. Then in ''Film/SpiderManHomecoming'', he ends up being outed to his friend Ned, [[spoiler:the ''villain'', and finally Aunt May herself.]]

* In ''HeroCatsOfStellarCity'', Cassie's owner Stanley and his daughter Suzie routinely don spandex as Galaxyman and Cosmic Girl, the crime-fighting superhero duo. Hilariously, while Cassie and her friends figure it out fairly quickly, it turns out Stanley and Suzie successfully keep their secrets from ''each other'' - Stanley has no idea that his sidekick is actually his daughter, and vice versa. Cassie can hardly believe it.

* In ''WearingTheCape'', secret identities are optional and a lot of superheroes don't bother with them. Some have undergone physical transformations that make secret identities impossible, but many also had public breakthroughs that "outed" them from the start. One variation on traditional secret identities is a legal second identity, established with the help of the government, much like that of witnesses in the Witness Protection Program.

* J'onn J'onzz, the ComicBook/MartianManhunter, originally masqueraded as a human police detective named John Jones; a later {{Retcon}} made this an impersonation of a ''real'' detective Jones whose killing he had witnessed. Stories in the ModernAge have established the idea that, as an unlimited shapeshifter, J'onn has actually created ''dozens'' of secret identities (and at least one other heroic identity, the Bronze Wraith).
