Enable Anonymous Access in SharePoint using PowerShell

How to Enable Anonymous Access in SharePoint using PowerShell?
In continuation with my last post, How to Enable Anonymous Access in SharePoint 2013, Here are some nifty PowerShell scripts to manage anonymous access in SharePoint:

Enable Anonymous Access in SharePoint using PowerShell
Enabling anonymous access in SharePoint involves three steps:
  1. Enable anonymous access for SharePoint web application
  2. Enable anonymous access SharePoint site
  3. Turn ON anonymous access on lists and libraries

PowerShell to Enable Anonymous Access settings of a Web Application:
Add-PSSnapin -Name Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue

$webApp = Get-SPWebApplication ''

PowerShell to Set anonymous access on specific SharePoint sites:
$web = Get-SPWeb
#Enabled -  lists and libraries; On - Entire web site ; Disabled - Self explanatory :-)
$web.AnonymousState = [Microsoft.SharePoint.SPWeb+WebAnonymousState]::Enabled 
Enable anonymous access on all sites under a web application:
(Get-SPWebApplication | Get-SPSite | Get-SPWeb | Where {$_ -ne $null -and $_.HasUniqueRoleAssignments -eq $true } ) | ForEach-Object { $_.AnonymousState = [Microsoft.SharePoint.SPWeb+WebAnonymousState]::On; $_.Update(); }

Enable Disable anonymous access at List or library level in SharePoint 2010:
Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue

#Get the web and list
$web = Get-SPWeb
$list = $web.lists.tryGetList("Documents")

if($list -ne $null)
    $list.AllowEveryoneViewItems = $true
    $list.AnonymousPermMask64 ="Open, OpenItems, ViewListItems, ViewVersions, ViewFormPages, ViewPages, UseClientIntegration"
To disable anonymous access, You can either set the Permission mask as:
$list.AnonymousPermMask64 ="EmptyMask" or reset inheritance by calling: $list.ResetRoleInheritance()
