First, you’ll need to create a new OnlyFans account. The best practice is to set up a separate email address just for your OnlyFans activity. This helps separate your personal and professional personas.

When setting your display name, use your real first and last name (this will be cross-checked during verification).

Step 2: Open OnlyFans Confirmation Email

After registering, you’ll receive a confirmation link in your email. Click this to verify your email address with OnlyFans and activate your account.

Check your spam folder if you can’t find the OnlyFans confirmation email.

With email confirmation done, you can now complete the full verification application. This involves submitting personal documentation to confirm your identity.

You will need to provide:

  • Legal name
  • Address
  • Date of birth
  • Photo ID (driver’s license, passport, etc.)
  • Selfie photo

The ID and selfie will be run through a third-party verification system called Ondato to cross-check your identity.
