Even though OnlyFans has gained a reputation for hosting rather raunchy 18+ content, it wasn’t originally intended for this sole purpose.
The platform was actually created for content creators to share exclusive content like behind-the-scenes footage and photos from their lives, without having to worry about other social media platforms censoring their posts.
If you’re interested in OnlyFans as a way of making money online, but would still like to remain anonymous, it is possible.
In this article, we’re going to cover exactly that, with nine ideas of how to make money on OnlyFans without showing your face.
Let’s get started.

Anonymous OnlyFans Income Ideas
Use a Stage Name
Part of staying anonymous means that no one knows anything about you. Choose a stage name, or fake name, to go by on the app.
This is popular especially in the music industry for singers who want to be known by a different name (think Lady Gaga).
Be sure that your stage name does not include any nicknames that people call you in person or hints at your own name.
For example, if your name is Jessica, don’t use a shortened version such as Jess. Keep your stage name simple and easy to spell, but also try to choose something that will be easy to remember by your Fans.
Remember Your Scars & Tattoos
Do you have a cute birthmark on your neck or a tattoo that says “love” on your wrist? Any type of marking will be a way people can identify you.
Be mindful if you have burn marks, scars, tattoos, and birthmarks to hide these in your photos.
If you cannot hide your markings in your photos with posing and props, then you can utilize photo editing apps to remove them.
Many photo editing apps today have a blemish, blending, cropping, and deleting tools to help create beautiful pictures without the markings that may identify you.
These tools can also be used to blur your face, background, or anything hinting at your location.
Don’t Show Your Face
It may sound a bit obvious to just say “don’t show your face”, but it’s a point that needs to be made.
On OnlyFans, it’s likely that when you build a following, people will pressure you to show your face.
Have you ever heard “you want what you can’t have”?
When you don’t show your face, you might pique the curiosity of your viewers.
Don’t let others pressure you into showing your face if you don’t want to.
If you are open to show your face, just not on your main feed, you can have a paid content option where you will show your face for a higher price.
Choose a Niche
“The riches are in the niches” is a common saying in online business.
A niche (pronounced “nitch” or “neesh” depending on where you’re from) is basically a category you post about.
If you don’t show your face in your content, then what can your fans expect from you?
Niches on OnlyFans can vary from themes of how you dress (think cosplay) to specific body parts (feet pictures).
A niche that does particularly well on OnlyFans without showing your face is fit girls or girls who like to go to the gym.
Use Social Media
Social media is a powerhouse in any marketing strategy today.
To get your OnlyFans page found faster, try using other social media sites such as Instagram, Facebook, Tik Tok, Twitter, and even forums such as Reddit for promotion.
Many niches on OnlyFans have pre-existing forums on Reddit where you are allowed to promote your page, so you might start there.
Be careful to not have any links to your personal accounts or any way for your identity to be confirmed when using social media.
Use the GeoBlocking Feature
OnlyFans has a geoblocking feature that you can utilize to block anyone from a specific area from seeing your content, especially the area where you live.
Here’s how you can block specific areas:
- Go to the settings page
- Tap on “security”
- Scroll down until you see “geoblocking”
- Choose the countries you want to exclude
- Tap “save changes”
You can block specific countries from seeing your profile, but you can also block specific users if you know their IP addresses.
People can get around this by using a VPN, though, so keep this in mind.
Provide a Subscription Service
Another option to make money from OnlyFans is to use it in place of something like Patreon.
You can use OnlyFans for a monthly subscription service to provide valuable content to your loyal fans.
Many celebrities are starting to use this function for behind-the-scenes or exclusive content that cannot be found anywhere else.
Some examples of celebrities who have subscriptions include:
- Bhad Babie
- Cardi B
- DJ Khaled
- Jordyn Woods
- Bella Thorne
- Amber Rose
- Chris Brown
- + more!
If you’re wanting to include full-body photos but are wanting to leave your face out, posing and props are your two best friends.
With posing, you can face the camera and turn your face away, have your back to the camera, or even use your hair to cover your face. Get creative.
The same goes with props: use them to cover your face or even part of your face. Many people use props such as stuffed animals, masks, and more to add to the photo as well as keep their privacy.
Finding props that fit well with your niche will make the picture look intentional.
Don’t Post Outdoor Photos
To keep not only your identity but also your location anonymous, it’s important you don’t post any outdoor photos. If you do, you should be very mindful of what is around you.
From the angle of your photo to having noticeable landmarks or buildings in the background, you don’t want anyone to be able to track you down.
This can mean gas stations, beaches, restaurants, and more.
You should even be careful with windows, sunglasses, or anything that might have a reflective surface.
These surfaces might have a reflection of where you are on the surface that can also give people an idea of where you are.
