Can OnlyFans creators see who follows them?
Yes, whenever you follow a creator for free on OnlyFans, they will be able to see it.
Similarly, if you subscribe to a creator, they will receive a notification that you subscribed to them (e.g. x subscribed to your profile!).
Whenever you follow someone on OnlyFans, they will be notified of it via a pop-up message (e.g. u7175490 subscribed to your profile!).
Only your username will be shown on the notification.
For example, if you didn’t change your username, the creator will receive a “u7175490 subscribed to your profile!” notification.
By default, usernames are generated as numbers.
This notification will be shown on the platform as a pop-up and via the bell icon.
The pop-up notification can be closed by the creator by clicking the “X” icon.
However, it will still be displayed on their list of notifications.
The creator will only be able to see your profile if you follow or subscribe to them.
If you did not follow or subscribe to any creator, they will not be able to see your profile unless they have the link to it.
What information can OnlyFans creators see?
OnlyFans creators will be able to see your profile information including your username, display name, profile picture, and bio.
However, they can only see your profile information if you follow or subscribe to them.
If you did not follow or subscribe to the creator, they will not be able to see your profile information.
Creators will not be able to see your credit card information.
In nutshell, creators can only see the information that is displayed on your profile.
Your OnlyFans profile is public, so any of your profile’s information will be visible to people who visit it.
If you’ve added your location, website URL, and Amazon Wishlist to your profile, anyone will be able to see it if they visit your profile.
Hence, you need to make sure to edit your profile and delete the information that you don’t want others to see.
Do OnlyFans creators see your name?
OnlyFans creators will be able to see your username and display name on the platform.
However, they will not be able to see your credit card information such as your real name.
By default, your username on OnlyFans will be a randomly generated number (e.g. u7175490).
As long as you don’t change your username or display name to your real name, the creator will not know your real name.
Regarding payments, whenever you make a payment via a payment provider, you’ll need to provide them with your credit card information.
OnlyFans will not have access to your credit card information—only the payment provider has.
OnlyFans and the creator will not have access to your credit card information.
Instead, your credit card information will be provided to OnlyFans as a “token”.
Is OnlyFans anonymous for creators?
In general, OnlyFans is anonymous for creators due to its privacy features.
Users can only find someone on OnlyFans if they have a link to their profile.
OnlyFans is generally anonymous for creators as there isn’t a search function on the website.
Moreover, only the information on a creator’s profile (e.g. profile picture, display name, username, bio) is publicly displayed.
In addition, a creator’s posts are only visible after a user subscribes to them.
More importantly, OnlyFans does not have a search function.
As a result, users can only find someone’s OnlyFans profile if they have a direct link to it.
A creator must promote the link to their OnlyFans profile via other social media platforms like Instagram and Twitter.
If a creator wants to be anonymous, they can avoid promoting their OnlyFans on their main social media account(s).
Instead, they can choose to promote their OnlyFans on a secondary account with a fake name.
If you’re looking to make your first payment on OnlyFans, privacy might be the first thing that comes to your mind.
In essence, creators will only be able to see the information that is displayed on your profile.
Your credit card information will be hidden from them.
However, keep in mind that OnlyFans will appear on your bank statement—you won’t be able to get away with that.
