If you’ve ever wondered if there’s an easy way to find someone on OnlyFans, within the platform itself, well, the answer is no.

The subscription service has a notoriously restrictive search function to protect the privacy of its creators. 

But, that doesn’t mean there is no way to search for specific people on the platform.

Here’s how to find someone on OnlyFans by username, location, real name, email, and preference. 

Let’s dive in.

How to Search for Someone on OnlyFans

With more than 170 million registered users, OnlyFans is one of the top 50 most visited sites on the Internet. 

But, given that the site is primarily focused on adult content and that there have been plenty of instances of people losing their jobs over their OnlyFans presence, remaining anonymous on the site has been a top priority for both content creators on the platform and regular users. 

To their credit, OnlyFans has made efforts to safeguard users’ anonymity. One such example is the search function on the site, which doesn’t allow anyone to search for specific users (you can search for posts only). 

That said, here are some workarounds you can try to find someone’s OnlyFans.

How to Find Someone on OnlyFans by Username

The simplest way to perform an OnlyFans search for a specific user is to add their username to the site’s URL (provided that you have it), like this:

If you don’t have their username, you can try finding them on other social media platforms, like Instagram, TikTok, and Twitter. 

Many content creators promote their OnlyFans on their social media pages, usually in their bio.

How to Find Someone on OnlyFans Using the Built-in Search Tool

The search function on OnlyFans lets users search for posts, rather than usernames or profiles.

However, you can try typing in some keywords related to the person you’re looking for and then search through the results to see if anything pops up. 

  1. Log in to your OnlyFans account.
  2. Click on the search bar in the top right corner of your screen.

  1. Type the username and press Enter. 

How to Find Someone on OnlyFans by Real Name

Since not many creators use their real names on OnlyFans, the only way to find them on the platform with that information only is to resort to a third-party app.

The most popular site for finding OnlyFans accounts is OnlyFinder.

OnlyFinder is a search engine for OnlyFans that crawls publicly available data from around the web to find OnlyFans accounts. You can search for a user based on name, location, ethnicity, and the type of content they create on the platform.

How to Find Someone on OnlyFans by Location

The easiest way to search for OnlyFans accounts by location is via OnlyFinder.

To perform an OnlyFans search by location on OnlyFinder.

  1. Visit the OnlyFinder website.

  1. Click on any location on the map and OnlyFinders will show you a list of OnlyFans creators in that area.

On the results page, you can further narrow the search by applying a number of filters and look for creators in that area by popularity, age, gender, subscription price, and more.

You can also modify the perimeter of your search (the default is 500km) in the search bar and put in a specific state, country, or city, like this location: ”Los Angeles.”

How to Find Someone on OnlyFans by Email

Finding someone’s OnlyFans by email can be done with an email reverse lookup tool.

A popular option is Social Catfish, an online investigation service in California, where you can search for an OnlyFans account by email, look for information that can help you reach certain people, and verify their online identity.

  2. In the search box, select Email from the top.
  3. Enter the email of the person you’re looking for on OnlyFans.
  4. Once the search is done, check if the results list an OnlyFans account that matches the email.

How to Find OnlyFans Accounts by Preference

You may be able to find people on OnlyFans based on the type of content that they create, but you’ll need to comb through a lot of accounts.

You can use OnlyFinder’s search tool or search on Reddit. There are plenty of subs on the site that can help you find your way around the site and the throne of content on it.

Worth noting: For complete privacy, we recommend using a VPN when accessing OnlyFans.

Bottom Line

OnlyFans doesn’t make finding their OnlyFans accounts on the site easy, mostly because they’re looking to protect content creators' privacy. But, there are ways you can search for specific people that are on the platform, including by username, location, and even their real name.
