Onlyfans is one of the fastest-growing websites in the world, giving users the chance to offer their various services direct to customers via a subscription service that offers various different deals.
It is a great way for people to supplement their income or create a whole new revenue stream.
However, Onlyfans deals primarily with adult content, so it takes great efforts to protect the identities of its users, as there is often private information being shared.
This means that it might be quite difficult to search for specific users on Onlyfans. But it is possible to search through the site itself.
So what are the best methods of searching for a certain Onlyfans user? How can you find people that are anonymous? Can you find a person through what they are posting?
Well, we have a quick guide that you can follow to track certain people down.
Why Does Onlyfans Protect Its Creators?
Onlyfans mainly specializes in adult content, meaning that there are often explicit videos and photographs being shared. There are some people that use Onlyfans to supplement their income, so protecting their primary jobs is a priority.
This is a website that takes the privacy of its users very seriously, which is why they have limited the search function to stop users from just randomly scrolling through profiles.
Very often users will operate under a pseudonym, again, to protect themselves if they have an alternate career.
Onlyfans will only allow you to view posts instead of users. Again, this is to protect the individuals that are creating content. However, you can access a user’s page through their posts, which is probably the easiest way to find certain creators.
So, is there a way around this so that you can find a specific user? Yes, there are a few workarounds that you can find to access someone’s Onlyfans page.
How To Find Someone On Onlyfans
Here are a few methods that you can try for searching for people on Onlyfans:
1. Adding Their Name In The URL
This can help you to find certain people, whether you know them by name or you are only aware of their Onlyfans handle (see also “How To Start An Onlyfans“).
All you need to do is type ‘http://onlyfans.com/’ followed by the person’s username. This can yield some results, although if the person has set their account to private, then it will not show up for you.
2. Finding A User Through Social Media
Often a lot of these content creators, especially if it is their full-time job, will often share their Onlyfans page through their Twitter, Instagram, Facebook or TikTok accounts.
If you are aware of the person’s online presence, then this can be a great method of accessing their content in a legitimate and consensual manner.
3. Using The Onlyfans Search Bar
Even though we have stated above that you can only search through a user’s post, you can still identify certain keywords that will turn up aspects of a particular profile. Here’s how you can go about doing that:
- Log in to your Onlyfans account.
- There will be a search bar at the top of your screen. Click on this to type in a search term.
- Type in the username followed by one or two keywords that you associate with that name.
This should yield some of the results that you are looking for so that you can narrow down your search terms. Bear in mind that you will want to limit the number of keywords that you are searching for.
More search terms make it harder to find a user.
4. Finding A User Using Their Real Name
You can find certain users by typing their real name into the search bar, although this will turn up far fewer results.
To do this you will have to resort to using a third-party app on your phone. One of the best methods of scouting out Onlyfans users by their real name is by looking through Onlyfinder.
This is an app that is not associated with Onlyfans, although it is not illegal to use. You can search for someone through their name, location and ethnicity through the Onlyfinder app.
Searching For Someone’s Location Through Onlyfinder
- Go to the Onlyfinder app and click on the search bar.
- A digital global map will appear. Click on the location of the user that you want to find. In order to use this feature, you will need to give Onlyfinder access to your location too.
- Once you have clicked on an area of the map, then you’ll see a collection of pink circles. These are Onlyfans users in the area in which you have searched.
You can narrow down the search filters to shorten the search results. You can do this with age, gender, and the amount that they charge for a subscription.
You can also restrict the search distance, which will also help you to narrow down the radius in which Onlyfans creators operate.
Searching For Someone Through Preferences
This will help you to find a certain content creator by looking for the type of content that they create. However, this method can be long and laborious and take you many hours.
The methods that we have listed above are generally a lot quicker and easier.
If you want to hide the fact that you are searching for someone, then you can use a VPN, which will block your IP address when you are searching for someone.
You can also search for a person’s content using Reddit search. If you are part of an Onlyfans community, then you can ask other users if they have any information on a certain user’s creator profile.
Onlyfans really value the privacy of its users, so if you are looking for an account that is choosing to remain private, then you should only search for them in a manner that is respectful.
Trying some of the methods above will help you to locate a certain user but via legitimate means.
