A cryptocommunist is a person who hides their identity as a communist or keeps it secret, for whatever reason.

Reasons to be a cryptocommunist include hiding from persecution, avoiding the social stigma that occasionally comes with being a communist, or that your communistic plans will only work if no one suspects what you are trying to do.

The word crypto means secret or hidden; Cryptography is the study, and practice, of hiding secrets.
