Age Verification on OnlyFans: How it Works and What You Need to Do

Key Takeaways:


Age verification is vital on platforms such as Onlyfans. Ensuring they are only being used by legit individuals who are of legal age to produce and or engage in adult content. This is a critical legal requirement that is universal, helping to create a safe and secure space within the adult community. Without adult verification, there is a strong risk of minors accessing adult content, as well as scammers and others stealing content. Additionally, a creator who fails to verify their Onlyfans can run into legal issues. By implementing age verification, creators can feel safe and secure that they are protected. In this article, we will give you a step-by-step guide on how to set up Onlyfans age verification, as well as the pros and cons.

How age verification works on OnlyFans

Overview of the process

1. Age verification on OnlyFans is a process that is required for all users before they can access the platform’s content.
2. Users will be prompted to verify their age upon creating an account or attempting to access age-restricted words and content.
3. The verification process typically involves submitting a form of identification, such as a driver’s license or passport, or providing credit card information.
4. Once the information is submitted, it will be reviewed by OnlyFans staff to confirm the user’s age.
5. Users will be notified via email or within the platform when their age has been verified.

Types of verification methods

1. ID verification: Users can submit a government-issued ID, such as a driver’s license or passport, to confirm their age.
2. Credit card verification: Users can provide credit card information, which will be used to confirm their age through a third-party verification service.
3. Social media verification: Users can link their social media accounts, such as Facebook or Instagram, to confirm their age.

Pros and cons of each method

1. ID verification: Pros include that it is a reliable and widely accepted method of verification. Cons include that users may be hesitant to share sensitive personal information and that it may take longer for OnlyFans staff to review and verify the information.
2. Credit card verification: Pros include that it is a fast and easy process. Cons include that not all users may have a credit card and that it may not be as secure as other methods.
3. Social media verification: Pros include that it is convenient for users who have an active social media presence. Cons include that not all users may have a social media account and that social media profiles may not always accurately reflect the user’s age.

Gathering necessary documents

2. Credit card: OnlyFans requires you to provide a valid credit or debit card to verify your age. The card must be in your name and match the name on your ID.

Submitting the documents

1. Once you have gathered the necessary documents, you will need to submit them through the OnlyFans website or mobile app.
2. The process is typically simple and straightforward, but you may encounter issues if the system is unable to read your ID or if the information on your ID does not match the information on your credit card.
3. Some users may need to provide additional verification documents such as a utility bill, bank statement, or selfie holding ID.

Tips for successfully completing verification

1. Make sure your ID and credit card are valid and in good condition.
2. Ensure that the name, date of birth, and photograph on your ID match the information on your credit card.
