does this actually anonymize it or just give the jet a tracking number?

You will still be able to track jets by their transponder. Planes are required to broadcast their location at all times.

What has changed is if there is a name attached to that transponder. This lets the owners of private planes have the FAA remove their name from the public record.

Edit airplanes not crops

That is what I get for having an ag background and then switching to planes.
