It probably has to do with the 1 minute delay after logging on, whats why you get the message "you are added to the map after 1 minute". I would venture to say that the anonymous reporting wouldn't happen after that

Probably takes some time to authenticate your account when you first load the app.

Reporting as "anonymous" instead of my username

I've just recently noticed that when I report hazards and whatnot, it's showing my username as "anonymous" sometimes.

Anyone know why this is?

I notice it has occurred when I immediately make a report within seconds of logging on.

I just wanted to add something to think about. if I'm not authenticated and thus anonymous, why there is my picture?
