Can you use Deck Foot Anchor to support a 6' fence post

I am putting up a 25' cedar fence, can I use these to install 4x4 fence post?

The deck foot anchor is not designed to support fence posts. It is intended to distribute compression forces to the soil and keep a structure like a deck or a shed platform properly supported.

The post bracket is not designed to provide any significant lateral load resistance at the top of the post and so you should not use it for building a fence.
