Confidentiality is anonymity of gamete or embryo donors to the recipients and resulted children and Vice Versa. In this article, I formulated the question about confidentiality through two main questions: 1- Ethically speaking, should the information about the characteristics and identity of donors be kept in specific organizations to be accessible for who considered having the right of access in the future? 2- Are receivers ethically obliged to inform their children about their biological origin? In this article, I assess the subject from Deontological, Utilitarianistic and Principalistic approaches and conclude that it is the right of such children to be informed about their biological origin. Of course in Iran, such ethical obligation should be suspended until the problems relating the heritage are solved.
