The Rise and Controversies of OnlyFans
OnlyFans is a subscription social media platform founded in 2016 by Timothy Stokely that allows adult content creators to charge users, known as “fans,” for access to videos, photos, and more.
The site quickly gained popularity among influencers, sex workers, fitness trainers, and celebrities as a way to monetize exclusive, often adult-only content. Here are some key stats about OnlyFans’ growth:
- Over 130 million users worldwide
- 2 million content creators
- Annual net revenue of over $375 million
- Up to 60% of users log in daily
However, OnlyFans has faced controversies around illegal content, privacy violations, and trouble with banking partners.
For example, the site has battled fake accounts and bots artificially inflating subscriber numbers. There have also been concerns about minors accessing inappropriate content.
OnlyFans relies heavily on major payment processors like Mastercard, who have sometimes suspended payments due to concerns over adult content. The platform has had to strengthen moderation and privacy controls to keep growing.
While it remains popular, the controversies contribute to some creators wanting to permanently delete their OnlyFans accounts.
What Happens When You Delete OnlyFans?
Before deleting your OnlyFans account, it‘s important to understand what happens:
All content deleted: Any posts, photos, videos, messages, and interactions will be removed from OnlyFans servers.
Subscriptions deactivated: Your subscriber accounts will be deactivated once their current subscription term ends.
No subscriber refunds: Subscribers will not receive refunds for any subscription time remaining when you delete.
Automatic deletion: Your account will automatically be deleted once all active subscriptions expire, unless there are pending payments.
Email confirmation: OnlyFans will email you to confirm when deletion is complete.
Permanent removal: You cannot reactivate a deleted OnlyFans account or retrieve any of your old content.
So be certain you want to delete your OnlyFans account, as the process cannot be reversed!

Unfortunately, OnlyFans has a strict no refunds policy when you voluntarily delete your account.
Some key points on OnlyFans refunds:
Subscribers will not be refunded for any unused subscription time remaining.
You will not be refunded for any creator revenue still in your account balance when deleted.
The only way to get a refund is if there was an error with the original purchase.
Refund requests must be made immediately upon purchase errors.
Deleting your account is not grounds for a refund from OnlyFans.
So don’t delete your OnlyFans account expecting to get any money back! Be sure to withdraw any funds prior to deactivation.
What Happens to My Subscriptions?
Wondering what happens to subscriptions when you delete your OnlyFans account?
If you subscribe to other OnlyFans creators, you will lose access to their accounts when your profile is deleted.
You will need to search for and re-subscribe to each creator individually if you join OnlyFans again in the future.
If you have subscribers and delete your OnlyFans account as a creator, your subscribers will lose access too.
Your follower count will immediately decrease. Subscribers won‘t get notifications; your account will simply vanish from their subscriptions list once deactivated.
