If you’re considering starting an OnlyFans, you may be asking yourself, “How can I stay safe and protect my online identity as an OnlyFans content creator? The short answer is: yes. You can be a successful OnlyFans creator while protecting your online identity. And, we’ve got some great ideas on how to stay safe and protect your online identity as an OnlyFans creator.

Our Commitment To You

We are committed to building the safest digital media platform in the world and go above and beyond the legal requirements, and our peers, to provide a safe platform for Creator and Fans. All while maximizing the freedom of Creators and Fans to control and monetize the lawful content they produce and view.

Consider Using A Stage Name

You can always do what artists, actors, and musicians have done forever: use a stage name

Aside from keeping your personal identity a secret from fans and others online, picking a good stage name can be a lot of fun. It could even be beneficial to your career in the long run. Consider the following:

  • If you have a common name, or you share a name with someone who’s famous, a stage name can help you stand out from the crowd!
  • Stage names allow you to build an entirely new identity that better represents you as a creator and allows your creativity to flourish. Why be another “Alex” when you can be Axel, or Mr. A, or Simon St. John?
  • Stage names can potentially make it easier for you to promote your brand! Wouldn’t you rather click on Simon St. John’s Seven-Minute Shred than Alex’s Exercise Routine?

Don’t Post Any Personal Or Revealing Information

A huge part of keeping our OnlyFans community safe is making sure everyone on the platform is who they say they are. We go through a lot of effort to understand the age and identity of OnlyFans Creator and Fans. But we don’t monetize that information or give that sensitive information out to anyone (without a good legal reason to do so). We don’t expect you to, either! 

Be conscious of what you post to your OnlyFans account, and don’t post things like your personal email, your address or your phone number. Those are no-brainers. 

But also consider hiding less obvious details about yourself as well. We’re talking about your location (such as city, state, or even country), employment information, or specific details about your history and background. Feel free to be vague! Instead of posting specifics in your bio like “Manhattan lawyer by day, Brooklyn burlesque dancer by night”, try something like “Off the clock and ready to rock the east coast!”. 

Remember, OnlyFans is an online community. In-real-life meetups between Fans and Creators are not allowed! Keep in mind, we review all of the content on our platform to keep you safe. So, if you share content or information which compromises your safety, we will remove it.

Make Your Online Identity Private On OnlyFans

Another way to protect your online identity as an OnlyFans content creator is to make your OnlyFans account private. Going private means you choose exactly who in the OnlyFans community can and can’t see your content, view your interactions with fans and other creators, or even be able to tell that you’re online.

You are in control, so take time to explore the host of powerful security features we offer to help keep your account private and your content protected.  For example, you can disable ‘Show activity status’ or block and restrict certain users from engaging with your posts. You can even prevent viewers from sending you a DM. 

In order to fully enable private mode, head to your ‘Settings’, click ‘Privacy and safety‘, and enable ‘Fully private profile.’ Depending on the nature of your content, some accounts will be set to Private by default. 

Shroud Your Online Identity In Mystery

Some OnlyFans creators are even more cautious still! We’ve seen plenty of successful accounts where creators hide their faces or other recognizable features like tattoos, piercings, birthmarks, etc. This could be a good excuse to start your wig collection!

Although please remember, we do need to know that it is you in your content for safety reasons. Bear that in mind when checking out the costume closet.   

We’ve Got Your Back

At OnlyFans, our priority is to ensure the safety of all users on the platform. We respect your privacy and we’re committed to keeping you safe and protecting your personal data. We do this in a number of ways, which includes age and identity checks, and investing in state of the art technology to keep our systems, and your data, secure. 

We also encourage you to use two-step authentication on your account, so that your account has additional protection and can’t easily be accessed. You can enable two-step authentication in ‘Settings’ and you can authenticate using the Authenticator app or via SMS. These features allow you extra protection over your identity.
