English watchdog says OnlyFans must do more to prevent underage use

England’s children’s commissioner says content-sharing platform OnlyFans needs to do more to stop underage use. BBC News found that under-18s have used fake identification to set up accounts on the site and police say a 14-year-old used her grandmother’s passport. Dame Rachel de Souza has written to the social media site expressing her “shock” and “deepest concern” at the findings. OnlyFans said it plans to meet her and correct any misinformation. OnlyFans allows people to share videos, photos, and messages directly with subscribers for tips or a monthly fee. OnlyFans takes a 20% share of all payments. Founded by Essex businessman Tim Stokely in 2016, the site has boomed during the pandemic and has more than 120 million users. Creators can post a range of content from cooking to fitness videos, but it is best known for pornography.
