Privacy wasn’t one of Satoshi Nakamoto’s main concerns when he created Bitcoin. It was only covered briefly in the original Bitcoin Whitepaper, where he wrote: … but privacy can still be maintained by breaking the flow of information in another place: by keeping public keys anonymous. In other words, every Bitcoin transaction is public - you can see which address sent Bitcoin to another address - but you don’t know who owns those addresses, unless that person announces it to the world.
