According to Chadwick Boseman, there’s a good reason his character doesn’t have a secret identity in Black Panther. From T’Challa’s debut in Captain America: Civil War, it was clear that the Black Panther wasn’t a traditional superhero. Rather than put on a costume to fight crime and save the world, T’Challa’s moniker and mantle are part of a lineage that’s tied specifically to the protection of his kingdom. And while his duties sometimes take him abroad, his home remains his primary concern.
In some ways, Black Panther as a character mirrors the arcs of heroes like Thor and Iron Fist. Their job is to protect their home and serve it in a variety of different ways. As such, there’s really no sense in T’Challa hiding that he and the Black Panther are one and the same.
