Who Can Use OnlyFans?


How Does Onlyfans Work?

OnlyFans is easy to use. Creators simply upload their content (videos, articles, photos) to the site. Creators can set their page to be free or paid and fans then pay to get access to the exclusive content. While creators can create accounts for free, when they earn money from the platform OnlyFans pays out 80%, keeping 20% of the earnings as a fee.

Due to the nature of a lot of the content on OnlyFans, users have to be at least 18 and will need a government-issued ID in order to sign up. The content is also protected by OnlyFans, ensuring that it can’t be shared outside of the platform. In fact, if a user tries to take a screenshot on the site, the content will show up blacked out. Users are also subject to banning if they’re caught trying to screenshot or record what’s going on.

OnlyFans takes privacy seriously, and it shows in how they try to protect the content that creators trust to the platform. In a statement, OnlyFans indicated that they have a “designated DMCA team that issue formal takedown notices against all reported copyright violations.” The DMCA team issues notices on all illicit hosting services, target websites, and domain registrars as well as notifying all major search engines of copyright infringements.
