If you’ve ever wondered if there’s an option to easily search for your favorite content creator on OnlyFans from within the platform itself, well, the answer is no.
That doesn’t mean, however, that there really is no way to find specific people on the platform, and this article explores all the different ways you can do so.
7 Ways to Find People on Only Fans:
1. Find Someone’s OnlyFans Profile by Username
The simplest way, if you’re familiar with a person’s OnlyFans username, is to follow this format and type it directly in the URL:
For example, if their username is ILoveCats, then it’s going to look something like this:
This will lead you straight to their page, no sweat.
2. Find Someone’s OnlyFans Profile by Email
Believe it or not, there is a way to find out whether or not someone has an OnlyFans account (not to find the account or profile itself, per se) using their email address.
If you’re familiar with their email address, you can do this by attempting to create an account using that email address.
Follow these steps:
- Open OnlyFans and try to create an account using their email address
- If the email address gets accepted, then that means that it hasn’t been used to create an account on the platform before. However, the person could very well have used a different one.
- If it tells you that the email address already exists in their database, then that proves that that person does have an account, either as a creator or a subscriber.
As mentioned above, this method doesn’t exactly give you the person’s OnlyFans account using their email. It would only give you an idea if there is an account that exists under that email address.
Even when someone deleted their OnlyFans account you will be able to find out using this method.
3. Find Someone’s OnlyFans Profile by Real Name
One foolproof way to find someone’s OnlyFans account is by using a 3rd party search tool like Onlyfinder.com.
To prove that it does work, I even tried searching for the OnlyFans account of a relatively well-known celebrity who was notorious for utilizing the platform to bolster their earnings during the pandemic (and consequently received major backlash for it), and they did show up in the results.
Using it is very easy.
- Type onlyfinders.com into your URL bar or search for it using the browser of your choice.
- Type the first and last name of the person you wish to find in the search bar.
- It should return a list of all the accounts that match the name you typed in.
Look closely at the profile pictures for any familiar face, and that should be the person you’re looking for.
But what if they’re not using their real name? After all, it’s not unlikely that they’re operating under a pseudonym to make themselves harder to find for people who know them personally.
Well, in this case, there are a few more options you can try, just like doing a location search.
4. Find Someone’s OnlyFans Profile by Location
The great news is that Onlyfinder.com also has the option to search by location.
To do so, follow these simple steps:
- Go to onlyfinder.com.
- Under the search bar, click on Map.
- It’s going to show a world map, with pink circles that illustrate an approximate range of OnlyFans users within a certain area. The larger the circle, the more users there are. Click on any area, and it would generate a list of OnlyFans users in that area.
You can even modify the size of the search area in kilometers by editing it in the search bar. The default is 500km, so it would definitely narrow your search down and make the results more accurate if you reduce the area.
The search bar also allows you to put in a specific country, state, or city. If you want to search the entirety of Los Angeles for OnlyFans users, for example, just use the following format: location:”Los Angeles”.
It’s going to show you all of the accounts within the Los Angeles area, as it would if you type in any other city in the world. It’s not very useful if you’re trying to find someone specific, but if you don’t mind scrolling through thousands of accounts and you have time to spare, then go for it.
5. Find Someone’s OnlyFans Profile in Your Area
Finding someone’s OnlyFans profile in your area works the same way on Onlyfinder.com. You can either click on your city on the world map or modify it in the search bar.
If you try to search using the map, however, there’s going to be a pop-up asking for permission to access your location, and if you click on “Allow”, then it’s going to do all the work for you.
6. Find Someone’s OnlyFans Profile by Using Social Media
There are times when the person themselves would advertise their OnlyFans account on their various other social media accounts like Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram. This is, of course, done in order to gain a larger audience and a bigger fan following.
In this case, just check if someone has put their OnlyFans link or username in their bio. This is going to make your life much easier.
7. Find Someone’s OnlyFans Profile by Using the Search Bar
The only “search bar” that OnlyFans has is a search bar that specifically says “search posts”. That means that it’s not used to look for usernames or profiles. It could work, but it wouldn’t be very accurate.
Still, if you would like to try your luck and give it a shot, you may do so by logging in to your OnlyFans account. Once you’re in, you should see the search bar at the top right-hand corner of your screen.
Again, what this does is search for “posts” using the keywords you’ve provided so naturally, what you’ll see are all sorts of posts that may or may not at all be related to the person you’re looking for.
Why Doesn’t Only Fans Offer a Search Function?
OnlyFans is a platform that mostly offers content that people would rather hide from their loved ones. People use advanced tactics to hide their OnlyFans payments from appearing on their bank account.
Therefore OnlyFans finds it only appropriate to give their content creators the opportunity to remain anonymous, which would of course make them feel more comfortable and secure.
That way, they also get to attract even more users, whether they be subscribers or creators.
Although some may find it inconvenient, it’s surely a win-win situation for both OnlyFans and its users. I, too, would rather maintain a sense of anonymity if I were on the platform, so this decision makes sense to me.
Do You Need to Have an OnlyFans Account to Find Someone’s Profile?
Despite what you may think, it’s not actually necessary for you to have an OnlyFans account yourself to find someone’s profile.
If your only aim is to find a specific profile for whatever reason or to confirm your suspicions about someone you know personally being a member of the platform, there are various ways to do it even without an account.
Using any one of these methods will save you the trouble of having to create an account, which you may end up not using, anyway.
However, against popular belief creating an OnlyFans account is free as long as you don't subscribe to anyone or cancel your subscription early enough.
