How to Make Money on OnlyFans Without Showing Your Face

As a no-face creator, highlighting other body parts is one way you can leverage the OnlyFans platform and still make bank. Read on to learn more.

Want to join OnlyFans incognito? Aside from having complete control over your content, you probably don't have to give up your private life to earn on the platform.

Discover the ways to post your moneymaker without outing yourself.

Why Make Money on OnlyFans Anonymously?

People have different reasons for not wanting to reveal who they are on OnlyFans. Most of them are because of these pros:

  • More privacy
  • Increases creativity
  • Amplifies messaging
  • Freedom of expression
  • Enhances versatility
  • Personal safety
  • Protects day job

Making faceless OnlyFans content may not be on your bingo card, but it has its benefits. One is that it allows you to keep your privacy, which could be a hard thing to give up at the start.

Taking your face out of the equation lends you an air of mystery. This could be alluring and intriguing to fans.

More importantly, you get a sense of freedom and creativity, allowing you to explore different aspects of your identity or interests without constraints.

Can you make money on OnlyFans and not show your face?
Many faceless creators are thriving financially on OnlyFans. They often push the envelope and use their creativity and innovation, which will be discussed later.

Is There a Downside to a No-face OnlyFans?

Unfortunately, having an anonymous OnlyFans has some drawbacks:

  • Income limitations
  • Lacks personal association
  • Reduces content premium
  • Less loyal fans
  • Trust issues

The biggest caveat is that you won't likely reach your full earning potential if you aren't showing your face to your fans.

A brand that is faceless can make it difficult to command a higher subscription fee or attract premium OnlyFans subscribers. Farrah, a no-face creator, solved this issue by charging more for content where she shows her face.[1]

Let's face it (pun intended), humans are generally visual beings. Without a face attached to your content that supposedly features yourself, it can look disjointed.

This is why no-face creators may find it more challenging to connect with their audience and build a loyal fanbase.

Some fans may be hesitant to subscribe due to concerns about authenticity or trustworthiness. For most people, seeing is believing.

Nkechi Diallo, formerly known as Rachel Dolezal, was relieved from her teaching job when her OnlyFans page saw the light of day in February 2024. According to her school's alumni director, her OnlyFans account violates their staff ethics policy.[2]

What concerns do you have about creating content on OnlyFans without showing your face?

How to Make Money on OnlyFans Without Showing Your Face

While you'll likely earn less than other creators, being anonymous on OnlyFans does not hinder you from making money. You also don't have to worry about being too risqué with your exclusive content because your face won't be there.

Meanwhile, consider SFW (safe for work) content ideas as well, like cooking and fitness, where you probably wouldn't feel the need to hide your face. Although OnlyFans is notorious for being adult-themed, these types of content, which are more wholesome, can thrive on the platform as well.

If you choose to be a faceless OnlyFans creator, the possibilities are practically limitless. Here are some strategies you can use:

What content are you most comfortable sharing without showing your face?

Consider a Profitable Niche Content

As it is, you can be easily tagged as a niche if you post faceless content. It's a road less taken by creators who want to maximize their OnlyFans income.

However, what you may not realize is that you can use your anonymity to your advantage and still be financially rewarded. It allows you to turn the spotlight on your content to let it shine, making it less about who's doing it.

Disclaimer: While CreditDonkey made every effort to deliver accurate information on the given topic, we are unable to verify any self-reported earnings cited in this article. On top of that, other income figures mentioned are either based on multiple publications or merely estimates of how much you can earn.

Cosplay or roleplay
This is one of the more profitable niche content ideas that several creators are using on OnlyFans and on their own website. With cosplaying and role-playing, you can become this larger-than-life figure far from your reality.

When a curious fan does a reverse search image on you, the heavy makeup and over-the-top costume can help obscure your identity. That way, you get to treat your fans to content that is still associated with a face they are willing to pay for.

Savannah started on OnlyFans cosplaying a Star Wars character. She began with an $80 income, and it blew up during the COVID lockdowns.[3] Today, she boasts over 4,000 paid subscribers on the platform.

Highlight other body parts
With visual media, your eyes usually dart toward a face image first. Thus, people tend to overlook other potentially interesting information that is also present in the frame.[4]

That's why feet pictures are making an excellent case for anonymous OnlyFans content creators. Fans are there for your feet, not your face.

Do you have perfectly proportioned hands? Why not be a hand model and sell content on OnlyFans?

Whichever body part you want to play up on your content, it should be aesthetically pleasing to your target audience's interests.

Some creators are not necessarily anonymous on OnlyFans but they choose not to show their faces specifically on their content. This is OnlyFans model Nicole's (knicoledz) strategy.[5]

While fans see her on her social media accounts, she states that she protects herself by making sure her raunchy content excludes her mug. That way, in case it gets leaked, it cannot be used against her, saving herself from embarrassment, even blackmailing.

Audio content
Voiced-over instructional videos and documentaries remain popular formats. But there's another type of audio content that has drawn listeners for several years now.

ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response) media is something that many OnlyFans creators have dabbled in. It is basically heightened sounds that produce a tingling sensation in the listener.

But according to the founder of ASMR University Dr. Craig Richard, not everyone may experience this sensory phenomenon.[6] Hence, this is a niche market.

Cassi (misscassi) isn't exactly an anonymous creator, but she focuses on sexy ASMR content. She charges a monthly subscription of $26.

Use Filters

With the help of filters, you can appear remarkably different on screen. You may also have the added benefit of having your pictures look more snatched, thereby attracting subscribers.

However, this is probably not enough to hide your true face. Remember, there are eagle-eyed fans who may be able to recognize you in real life. Instead, you can use face-editing apps that dramatically alter your image on videos to maintain anonymity.

Can you sell AI content on OnlyFans?
Yes, you can post AI OnlyFans content and still make money off it. However, make sure you are only featuring an AI image version of yourself, and you have to be transparent about it.[7]

Interact With Your Audience

Another way to make money on OnlyFans without showing your face is by engaging with your fans. This includes responding to personalized messages or featuring behind-the-scenes footage during content creation.

According to Swedish OnlyFans content creator Amber Sweetheart, tagged as the "Queen of Texting," many of her paid subscribers crave personal connections more than her visual content.

She specializes in chatting with her fans and shares that she genuinely enjoys the process. The lack of a face-to-face encounter from texting just fuels the imagination more.[8]

Amber has benefited financially from interacting with her dedicated audience. In addition to her OnlyFans success, she has since released a book about—you guessed it—texting!

Take your earning potential to greater heights as a no-face creator by having your own content monetization website. You can also use it for promoting content on your OnlyFans account.

Maximize Tipping

Just like conventional creators, you can also earn from tipping even if you are anonymous on OnlyFans. But you have to create content that's compelling enough to monetize through this method.

At the same time, you should be proactive about it—ask them to tip you! Add a call to action on your captions to encourage this activity.

If you're new, activate your tip button by updating your feed regularly and include at least 10 posts.[9] This will allow your fans to tip your profile, posts, livestreams, and DMs.

How do beginners make money on OnlyFans?
Content monetization is possible for newly verified OnlyFans creators if only you get fans to pay for your content. They can do this by subscribing to your paid page, buying your PPVs in your free account, or tipping you on the OnlyFans platform. You can cash out if your earnings from the last 7 days reach at least $20.[10][11]

How to Stay Anonymous on OnlyFans

Aside from using a stage name, voice changer, generic backgrounds, and hiding your identifying marks, there are other ways to mask your identity on OnlyFans:

  • Camera angle
    Perhaps you don't have to cover your face with a mask or use sophisticated software. Strategically positioning your camera or employing framing techniques can do the trick.

  • Separate email account
    If you want to have an anonymous account on OnlyFans, using an online persona isn't enough. You must register an email address for your OnlyFans account separate from what you use regularly.

    OnlyFans superstar Bryce Adams (not her real name) consistently wears a lace mask or sunnies when on camera. She is said to have built a $20 million empire as a creator on the platform.[12]

  • Use geoblocking
    You can take advantage of this feature by adjusting your privacy settings.[13] Simply block states or cities from accessing your anonymous OnlyFans page to avoid discovery.

  • Get a VPN (Virtual Private Network)
    As an added layer of privacy, turn on your VPN when shooting or posting content. VPNs work by redirecting your IP address to a different server, preventing third parties from detecting your actual location.

  • Remove metadata from photos & video content
    This isn't really an issue for regular OnlyFans posts. It's more for when sending pics/videos via direct messaging. Make sure to turn off your location in your camera settings.

  • Secure financial documents
    If you haven't outed yourself to family members, note that your bank statements will reflect your OnlyFans payouts. Thus, it's best to open a separate bank account for this purpose.

How to Promote on OnlyFans Without Showing Your Face

Marketing isn't that different when you promote OnlyFans anonymously. But like other explicit content, it entails a lot of work.

Here are two of the most effective ways to get your faceless content in front of paying eyeballs.


Reddit is a community-driven platform that consists of multiple discussions on a variety of topics called subreddits. Many creators have shared that it has helped them grow their OnlyFans following, making it an ideal space for beginners to promote their page.

OnlyFans creator Alanah Cole says that Reddit is good for anonymous creators because the discovery of family members and friends is less likely compared to social media channels.[14]

Unlike other social media platforms, Reddit will push out high-quality content based on the upvotes it receives from redditors, not on how large your following is.

This is why a MrBeast video will still get an insane number of views no matter how bad it is. That's because YouTube algorithms work that way, but not Reddit.

The quality of your Reddit posts is important as well as the subreddits you choose to be in. So if you get a lot of upvotes for a specific post, it can move up on the Hot list, making it more visible to other users.

Even if you have zero following, your post can still get promoted as long as it's being rated well.

An upvote is Reddit's Like button. Your success on the platform will largely depend on how many upvotes your content gets. This means your posts shouldn't only be good, but they should be good enough to stand out from the others.

Social Media

Any successful creator will tell you that the best way to promote OnlyFans is through your social media accounts. But as a no-face creator, having a separate one from your existing personal account is a must.

X (formerly Twitter) is one of the few that, like Reddit, is NSFW-friendly. At the same time, anonymous creators prefer this platform since it does not actively promote your page to people in your area, unlike Instagram.

After you sign up, begin by filling your page with valuable content.

According to OnlyFans creator Violet Fire, joining engagement groups can help grow your follower count. It works by retweeting posts of those in the group and returning the favor. She said it has increased her following by the thousands.[15]

Although Instagram isn't as welcoming to adult themes, many OnlyFans creators use it to promote their page, albeit discreetly.

If you want to remain anonymous, it's important to block ALL family members and friends from accessing your dedicated OnlyFans Instagram account.

In addition, you'll have to use a VPN so that Instagram won't promote your page in your local area. Use link-in tools instead of placing your OnlyFans direct link on your profile. Otherwise, you may be suspended—if not banned—from the platform.

Use trending audio in your Instagram reels, which helps the algorithms to work in your favor. This is the sound you'll often hear as you scroll the suggested reels in your feed.

Just like Instagram, TikTok isn't welcoming when it comes to OnlyFans content. So, make sure you don't mention OnlyFans anywhere—even putting your link on LinkTree or Beacons will get flagged.

What you can do is to funnel your followers to other social media accounts like Instagram, where they can discover your OnlyFans link.

Post at least once a day, if not twice. TikTok will promote those who are regularly creating content on its platform.

Timing is also key. Don't miss the opportunity to put out your content between 7:30 pm and 11:30 pm, based on your target market's time zone. This is when people tend to be more proactive in searching for NSFW content.

Aside from posting great pictures and reels, squeeze in engaging captions. This will help increase your view time, which is super important.

The longer your viewers stay on your video, the more TikTok will likely push out your content.

Can you be successful on OnlyFans without showing your face?
While it may be harder, you can achieve OnlyFans success as a no-face creator. Focus on building a strong online brand and niche where not showing your real face doesn't affect your content quality, such as ASMR and foot fetish content.

What to Do if Your Fans Discover Your Identity?

Sometimes, no matter how careful you are to protect your identity as an anonymous OnlyFans creator, things happen. What if your real name gets accidentally leaked—what do you do?

The first thing is to assess the situation. Evaluate the extent to which your identity has been revealed and take immediate action if needed to secure your safety.

If your fans call you out for it, the best thing you can do is to address it directly with them. Nonetheless, it's up to you if you want to carry on as an OnlyFans creator or not.

In any case, OnlyFans is known to have a high standard of protecting personal data of its creators.[16] If the leak is caused by a data breach, you should probably consider legal recourse depending on the severity.

Can you stay completely anonymous on OnlyFans?
You can be anonymous to your followers, but not to OnlyFans. When you sign up, you need to prove your identity before you are approved as a creator.[17]

Bottom Line

With a profitable niche and effective use of monetization tools, you can delve into adult content that thrives on OnlyFans without showing your face.

As an anonymous creator, you are practically compelled to be more innovative in your presentations. It allows your content to shine more and amplifies your messaging.

You may not earn as much as other OnlyFans creators, but at least you get the added benefit of more privacy.

Nevertheless, you have to keep up with trends to stay competitive on the platform, no-face or otherwise.
