No. OnlyFans is a platform that allows its content creators to share all kinds of content with their fans. The platform does allow for nudity and adult content to be shared but people can also share their talent on the platform. Hence, musicians, painters, dancers, and all kinds of artists can share their work that they think their followers should pay for.

The possibilities are endless. Celebrities on OnlyFans have managed to earn up to 11 million dollars in a month! However, not all content creators can earn that much.

No, OnlyFans is only available as a web portal. There are no apps on either Android or iPhone. Hence, do not download fake apps from malicious sources.
