Everyone who signs up to OnlyFans has to use an email address. The platform works just like anything else online where you need an account – your email address will act as your username for the website, and it’s where you’ll also be sent any important notification information.

But who can see the email address you use when you sign up? Who can access that information, and is it possible to use email addresses to find people on OnlyFans?

Let’s take a look.

Can OnlyFans Users See Your Email?

OnlyFans users don’t have access to email addresses on the site. Whether you’re another user or a creator, all you’ll see is the display name for the person. Clicking on them doesn’t reveal any more of their personal information.

Creators can therefore relax a little when signing up if they want to remain anonymous. They don’t need to use a secret email address to avoid having their OnlyFans profile tied back to their real name or anything by eager subscribers. The email address stays completely hidden from all fans and subscribers.

Can OnlyFans Creators See Your Email?

OnlyFans takes user privacy seriously, and this commitment extends to how email addresses are handled on the platform for users as well as for creators. So no, when you sign up as a user of OnlyFans, creators won’t be able to see your email address even if you subscribe to their content.

This of course can cause some issues for OnlyFans creators. You might have subscribers who are hiding their real name from you behind a fake internet profile, even if they’re using their normal email address. It could be someone that you know in real life, pretending to be someone you’ve never met.

But from a user’s perspective, your privacy is just as important as a creator’s, so you don’t need to worry about your email address being visible to them. They can’t contact you off the platform or use your email address for any nefarious means.

Can OnlyFans See Your Email?

Yes, the OnlyFans platform can see your email address. Otherwise, how would it be possible for the platform to send you notifications via email, such as when a favorite creator of yours uploads something new, or for creators when you have a new subscription or messages that need to be replied to?

OnlyFans stores all personal information securely though, so it’s not like there’s a team at OnlyFans spending hours browsing the email addresses of everyone who uses the site and looks for juicy gossip.

Even if they had that power, they don’t have the time. There are way too many people signed up to OnlyFans either as a content creator or a user, and the OnlyFans staff barely have enough time to handle actual customer support queries.

So yes – OnlyFans does store your email address and it can be viewed when necessary, but it’s a legitimate company that does use appropriate tools to make sure your personal data remains safe.

Searching For Creators By Email Address

One of the drawbacks to email addresses being kept hidden on OnlyFans is the inability of users to search for creators based on an email address.

Even if someone had your email address that you’ve used to sign up to OnlyFans, if they try to search for it on the site your profile will not show up. The only way that people can find you using OnlyFans’ search is if they look for your profile name or the search tags that you’ve used.

So, if you’re a user who hoped you could sign up for OnlyFans and then use your email address book as a way of finding your contacts who have an OnlyFans page, we have to disappoint you – it’s not possible.

If you’re desperate to find OnlyFans creators in your area or that you might know personally, you’ll have to get a little bit better with your detective work. Or you could use our Follower Find service and narrow it down by country at least, as a starting point.

How Could Someone On OnlyFans Get Your Email?

The only ways that someone could access the email address that you’ve used for your OnlyFans account would be:

  • If you have chosen to share your email address
  • If you’ve been hacked

If you know that you’ve kept your email address hidden across all of your socials, then it’s likely that someone emailing you has hacked you.

If you’re just getting the regular junk emails that everyone gets, it’s probably not something you need to worry about. But if you’re getting personalised emails from fans, or your email address is being passed around the OnlyFans community, it means someone likely knows your OnlyFans password and has logged in to grab your details.

If that’s the case, you need to act fast.

Steps To Take If You’re Hacked

If you’ve been hacked on OnlyFans, you should take the following steps:

  • Change your password immediately. Make sure it’s something completely different from the password you used earlier, and ideally make it as complicated as possible. Download a password manager if you want it to generate something complex for you, and store it automatically
  • Set up two-factor authentication. This is where you’ll be sent a message to your phone with a passkey every time you try to log in. It’s frustrating having that extra step in place, but it’s really important to protect your personal information.
  • Block the person sending you emails, and if they’re commenting on your OnlyFans profile, make sure you block them there too and delete any of their comments which contain your personal info.

It’s unlikely that they’ll keep sharing your email address – there’s not really anything for them to gain by doing so. If you tackle the problem head-on, you can force them to disappear.

What Other Information Can People See?

The only information that users and creators can see when they look at a profile on OnlyFans is the person’s display name that they’ve chosen, along with their profile picture.

All other information, including your credit card details, is held on a secure server with OnlyFans. While there have been OnlyFans hacks and leaks before, those are related to content and typically happen off-site, where cloud storage folders are hacked, rather than OnlyFans itself. So your credit card information and other personal details will be safe when you use the site.

Of course, if you’re hacked then anyone can access all the information in your account – another good reason to make sure you have two-factor authentication set up on your profile in order to keep it secure.

Should You Use A Separate Email Address?

Even though it’s extremely unlikely that you’ll be hacked and someone can get access to your email address, it’s still a good idea to use a separate email address from your regular personal one for your OnlyFans account, whether you’re a creator or a user.

As we’ve discussed, creating a separate email provides an additional layer of privacy. It helps to keep your OnlyFans activities separate from your personal and professional life. This is particularly important if you want to maintain a level of anonymity and avoid potential connections between your OnlyFans content and your real identity.

But also consider the reduced spam. Using a dedicated email for OnlyFans can help minimize the risk of receiving unwanted promotional emails in your primary inbox. This can help keep your personal and professional communications organized and reduce distractions.

It also means that you’ll be able to spot important notifications faster.

Just make sure you have the inbox set up on your phone or laptop, somewhere you can see it, so that you don’t forget to check it. Even if you’re always logging into OnlyFans to check your messages or manage your account, you might miss important information if you don’t check the email address.

Sharing Your OnlyFans Email Address

You should never share your OnlyFans email address with anyone, especially if it’s a personal email address you’ve used unless you’re happy with it being out there in the public domain.

You might think that you’re creating a brand, but again, what would be the point of it? You might get fans sending you emails instead of messaging you through a platform that can be monetized. Or you risk getting hacked – which can lead to leaks.

So purposefully sharing your email address with creators wouldn’t be a good idea. If you ever get to the point that you want to have your own personalized website, use a contact form instead so that people can email you without seeing your address.

And if you do decide to show your email address, make sure it’s different from the one you’re using to log into your account. Even if you have two-factor authentication and a long, randomly generated password, you don’t want to invite extra risk.

In Summary

You don’t have to worry about people being able to access your email address when you use OnlyFans, whether you’re a creator or a user. It’s not something that anyone has visibility of, and it’s not hidden data for searches either – so your close friends or family members aren’t going to be able to see whether you’re using the platform just by searching for your email address.

Of course, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t exercise caution. It is advised to set up a separate email address for your OnlyFans account, even just to mitigate the risks of being hacked and make sure anyone who does get hold of your email can’t then hack other important accounts belonging to you.

Just be careful – but typically, your email address is safe on OnlyFans.
