What is OnlyFans?

OnlyFans is an online content subscription service where you can receive payment for the content you post by charging your followers, or 'fans,' who subscribe to your content, for a monthly subscription fee. You can also earn income by introducing new users to the platform. 

‘Content creators’ can upload photos and video, broadcast live streams, pay to view other profiles and send mass direct messages to followers. As a 'fan' you can also join or view content like paid posts or paid private messages without subscribing to a content creator. 

Nudity is permitted on OnlyFans, so the content posted by content creators is typically intimate. There are also reports of OnlyFans user content being leaked to the public.  

It’s important to note – Australians who share explicit images on the internet can place themselves at risk of wider circulation of those images online. If this happens to you or someone you know, eSafety can help.

Accounts are registered using an email, Google or Twitter account. OnlyFans content can be shared directly to Twitter.


Apps: There are no official OnlyFans apps currently available.
