When posting your content on social media and the internet, it’s vital that you ensure that your content and data are completely protected. There are plenty of steps you can take, but, unfortunately using social media and posting online comes with its own risks. Whatever you post is likely to be at risk of content leaks and data breaches. However, that’s not the case everywhere. At OnlyFans, we’re extremely committed to protecting the content and data of our creators, meaning that your content and data on OnlyFans is safe and secure. Here are the ways OnlyFans protects your content and data.
When using OnlyFans, you can guarantee that your data and content will be safe and secure thanks to data encryption. Your personal information (such as your address and date of birth) is kept on a separate server and is fully encrypted so that hackers can’t access your exact details. Also, we like to ensure that our OnlyFans creators can earn, safe in the knowledge that their earnings are protected. This means that your financial information – such as your bank account details and payment card – are stored by our payment processors, which are PCI (Payment Card Industry) compliant, and never shared. Therefore, you’ll never have to worry about hackers or scammers stealing your financial information.
When accessing your OnlyFans account, you’d normally be required to sign in with your username and password – which should be strong, easy for you to remember but hard for others to guess. A strong password is a sure-fire way to protect your account in an instant.
But did you know that you can go the extra mile when protecting your account with two-step authentication? Enabling two-step authentication is a really effective way to add additional protection to your OnlyFans account. To set this up, you need to download Google Authenticator or Microsoft Authenticator on your phone. Then, you need to log in to your OnlyFans account, go to ‘Settings’, click on ‘Account’, select ‘Two Step Verification‘ then click to enable it. Follow the instructions to connect your authenticator app by adding the QR code or Key. Once connected, you’ll have to enter a six-digit code every time you log in to your OnlyFans account.
With OnlyFans, you can control what your fans see, and there are a number of ways to do this. First of all, like most other social media channels, you can put your account on private mode to hide your content. To do this, you’ll need to go to ‘Settings’, then click on ‘Privacy and safety’ and then select to enable ‘Fully private profile.’ You can also enable or disable other functions if you wish, such as disabling ‘Show activity status.’ In addition to this, you can restrict and block users to stop them from seeing your content, engaging with you by commenting on your posts or sending a DM to you.
As we just mentioned, you can block or restrict users from interacting with you. But what about your content? Well, you can pick and choose! You can enable or disable comments on your posts, which is great if you don’t want people to add their comments. Also, when posting your content on OnlyFans, it’s a good idea to add watermarks to your content to discourage users from re-posting your content without your permission. To allow this feature, go to ‘Settings’, then click on ‘Privacy and safety’, click on ‘Watermarks’ and select the content you’d like to watermark. You can do this for posts, videos or both.
Unfortunately, a minority of users will attempt to go to great lengths to steal and/or re-post your content without your permission. If this ever happens, then you should get in touch with our dedicated Copyright Team, who are here and on hand to help you resolve the matter.
