Most of us are interested in earning money through OnlyFans, however, showing body and face concerns a ton of them! There are some ways available, through which you can stay completely private and still make a bunch of money. 

There is a misconception associated with OnlyFans that it sells porn only. But it is not entirely true. Yes, some models and celebrities have a page on this site where they show off their bodies and make millions.

Yet, there are some people which do not show even an inch of their body and are still making millions. Interested in knowing more? Read on. 

Can you stay anonymous on OnlyFans and still make money?

What is OnlyFans and who uses it?

OnlyFans is a social media platform for creators, based on subscription. It was founded by Timothy Stockley back in 2016, although he has been replaced by the position of CEO. However, he still has the majority of stocks in the company. 

It was advertised as an online platform which connects fans with their favourite creators, but, after a while, creators start making millions off the OnlyFans by selling their nudes.

In 2020, when the whole world was on home arrest due to covid, this trend became popular among people, and millions of people started creating adult content as a source of side hustle.

Is that a good source of Income? Yes, it is. Maybe the easiest source of income. When Bella Thorne started using OnlyFans, she made a million dollars in just 24 hours.

You can do that too, the only requirement is a hot body. Not just content, but people are selling their used clothes, and knickers and some are even selling farts and sweat. Weird, right?

Have you ever liked someone on Instagram so much that you would have done anything to get in their contact? Try checking out them on OnlyFans, if they are available there then half of your work is done! You can instantly buy their subscription or even book a call with her, depending upon whether they do that or not!

Whenever you feel lonely and want to talk to someone, It's your go-to site. However, you'll have to pay a hefty amount to talk to them.

How to create an account on OnlyFans anonymously?

  1. Set an anonymous email account.

The foremost thing you need to do to make money anonymously on OnlyFans is set up a ProtonMail account.

ProtonMail is a mail hosting service that doesn’t require any personal information for a signup, so your identity won’t be compromised in case of a breach. We generally recommend this provider to anyone who needs to be able to stay anonymous while emailing, but it also works perfectly for OnlyFans.

The most important thing, in this case, is to use an alias when signing up for ProtonMail. Don’t use your personal name or any other personally identifiable information anywhere. Creating an address like “” would hardly make me anonymous

  1. Create an anonymous OnlyFans account using that email account.

After you’ve created that anonymous email, you can sign up for OnlyFans. Here you must decide whether you want to set up an account as a content creator or regular user.

Sign up as an OnlyFans creator

For creators, OnlyFans requires extensive information like your legal name and bank account details. Moreover, you’ll need to provide extra documents to verify your identity. These are a photo of your government-issued ID (like a passport, driver’s license, or ID card) and a selfie of you holding up the same document.

OnlyFans need that information for tax purposes and to pay you legally. There’s no getting around that. In other words, if you’re a creator of OnlyFans, OnlyFans will always know who you are.

However, this doesn’t mean any of your followers or fellow creators have to know your true identity. You can make your profile as personal or as anonymous as you want.

We’re not really sure why they need such a wide array of permissions, but it’s definitely something privacy-conscious users will want to avoid. That’s why we recommend that you don’t sign-up with your Twitter account.

Signing up as a regular user anonymously

As a paying customer, a ProtonMail account will be enough to keep your identity hidden from other users, but even then OnlyFans will require a credit card to let you navigate the platform. Your payment information will be visible to Stripe, their third-party payment processor.

In other words: complete anonymity in the face of OnlyFans and its partners isn’t possible, but you can protect your account from other users and the public.

  1. Set up an anonymous and strong username and password.

Whether you’re a creator or a fan, if you’d like to stay anonymous, make sure your login credentials can’t be traced back to you. Don’t use your own name or date of birth, for instance, but a throwaway login ID. Aside from that, it’s always important to make sure you secure your account by using a strong password.

This means it should be difficult to guess and different from those on any other platforms you use. You can find more tips in our guide to creating strong passwords. If you’d rather use a password manager to generate, store, and pull up your unique passwords for you, we’d advise 1Password.

  1. Set up two-factor authentication.

To activate two-step verification, you’ll need to provide a phone number, a Microsoft account, or a Google account. This means you’re increasing the security of your account, but decreasing the level of privacy you have on the platform.

After all, you’re connecting some kind of personally identifiable information to your account: either your phone number or one of your online accounts.

If you really want to remain anonymous, you could buy a prepaid SIM card to use as a throwaway phone number. This can be as cheap as two or three dollars, and you can use it on an older phone to act as an extra layer of security, without jeopardizing your privacy.

  1. Change privacy settings.

If you’re a content creator on OnlyFans, there are several other measures you can take to protect your privacy. These include making sure you:

  • Don’t display your active status.
  • Hide your tips sum.
  • Make your friends list confidential.
  • Hide your media count, unless you want to use it as a competitive advantage on the platform.

How can you keep yourself anonymous on OnlyFans?

  1. Do not feel pressured to show your face on OnlyFans.

The best thing about OnlyFans is that no one will ever pressurize you to show your face. This is entirely your decision. And honestly, nobody really cares about the face, they will focus on your body only.

 Some might try to bribe you by offering an unbelievable amount just to see your face, however, never fall in such traps. Because, it might be possible that they are recording that video call with you. And once your identity is out, it's out.

Moreover, most of the cam models wear masquerade eye masks. You can do that too. To stay on the safer side, avoid showing anything above your neck, just show them the body parts that they are interested in and that's it.

  1. Use a Stage name.

The most basic thing is not using your real name. Think of a slutty name and go after it. That's it, and you got your stage name! One more thing– do not use any name that is close to your real name. For example, your name Ashley, then do not keep your name Ash. As it would be pretty easy to figure your name. 

Don't overthink, just think of a name which you think would be sexy and resonate with a hot model! That's it, that's your name. Also, never ever tell your real name to any of your fans. No matter how much you trust that fan or how long he has been your subscriber. Once your real name is out, it's out!

  1. Make sure to provide real documents while verifying on OnlyFans.

You can not provide wrong documents in order to save your identity. They will not flash your bank details or your real name on your OnlyFans page.

 It is quite self-explanatory why you need to provide real documents for verification. You'll have to provide your real name, there is no trick to get away with that. Remember, your real name means the name that is associated with your bank account.

If you do not provide real documents, then at the time of payout, your money will go to someone else's account. Also, it would create a lot of trouble in future.

Because, even a low earning model on OnlyFans creates a substantial amount annually, which is taxable! And if you haven't provided your real name in order to stay anonymous, it may get you in trouble.

  1. Maintain anonymous ID on social media as well.

A time will come in your career, when you'll have to create a social media account in order to promote your services. However, anonymity is key here, use your stage name only. Only your stage name. And try to keep your real ID away from your professional ID as far as possible.

Because people have a lot of time, and they'll try their best to find out your real Identity.

If anonymity is your primary concern, then use Reddit and Instagram only to create your online presence. And stay away from those social media platforms that will ask you your email ID, Google account or Facebook account for login purposes.

 Always remember, you'll have to be very careful, if you wish to stay anonymous and earn money as well. Because, once you get comfortable and lose your guard, people will find every single detail!

  1. Never reveal your actual location.

Isn't it obvious? Do not reveal your real location to anyone. OnlyFans give the option to their artists that they can publicize their location.

This option is available on OnlyFans because most of the creators keep their amazon wishlist on their bio plus if someone would want to send them any surprise gift, they can use their location for that.

However, you don't have to do that, because if you are from a small city or town. Then it can create a lot of buzz in your neighborhood which can destroy your reputation.

 Also, if you really need to add your location, play with it. You can add things such as, "i live in fairy land" or "queen's empire". Be creative, and add a creative address.

Can you make money on OnlyFans without showing your face?

If you know how to market yourself, then you wouldn't face any problem and still make a huge amount of money by showing your face.

However, it will be a little difficult for you, because it would be similar to seeing a set of boobs on the internet. So why would they pay you to see the same thing? They will, if you are good enough!

The adult market is huge and people are making money by selling their worn out socks as well. There are hundreds of things that you can do by leveraging your OnlyFans audience.

First try to analyze your audience, and analyze yourself as well. What body part of yours is the hottest that people would pay any amount to see! A bit of self-awareness will help you a lot in this journey.

After you have analyzed your body, try finding people that are interested in seeing that. For example, you may have huge breasts and extremely beautiful feets. Now that you are aware of your strength, create an audience. 

You can take help from social media here. Reddit and twitter do not censor nudes and NSFW content. By posting some free pictures, you'll create an audience, and you can turn them into your customers later.

Can OnlyFans payment be anonymous?

It's not possible to stay completely anonymous on the OnlyFans. You'll have to provide your true details to them at the time of verification and pay outs from them will also require your information. You can try everything to stay anonymous, but you can not hide yourself from the company. 

Some influencers on OnlyFans uses third party payment platforms like securionPay to receive payments regularly.

This way OnlyFans wouldn't have your personal details to give payments. However, the payment transfer companies would have your data. Therefore, we are said earlier that it is impossible to stay anonymous entirely. 

Moreover, if you are a content consumer. Even then, you can't make anonymous payments because credit card will have your details.

And you can pay for the memberships only through your credit card. If you think, you can use cryptocurrency to pay for your bills in order to stay anonymous. Then, that won't be happening on the OnlyFans.


Hope this blog has motivated you to begin your OnlyFans journey. In this era, becoming a millionaire is quite easier than it ever was.

It requires a smart mind, that's it! Just remember, if you know how to sell, you can sell anything. People are making millions by selling their worn socks and underwear as well. And there are several other ways as well in which you wouldn't be showing your face to earn money.

Don't listen to the morons, who'll try to bring you down for having a OnlyFans page. First of all, you don't have to reveal this to anyone. Secondly, no one's going to know once you follow the above given tips and tricks!
