How Safe & Legit?

Here’s how safe and legit is:

It is not legitimate or safe.

The site does not work as intended, tries to rope users into giving up personal information, and asks users to install multiple different malicious programs on their personal devices.

It is dangerous, a scam, and something that you should avoid using for any reason.

So if you want to learn all about how legit and safe is exactly, then this article is for you.

Let’s jump right in! How Safe & Legit? (Everything to Know)

What Is OnlyShares? (2 Things)

The first thing I’ll say is that is an actual website.

The second thing I’ll say is that I do not recommend visiting or using that site.

That’s the quick version, but to answer your questions correctly, I’ll have to be thorough.

Let’s start with what the website claims to be.

Supposedly, OnlyShares is a third-party website add-on that is intended to work with OnlyFans.

You are supposed to be able to link an OnlyFans account to OnlyShares, and then when you use OnlyFans, the OnlyShares add-on can help you download content from OnlyFans.

That’s pretty specific, so I’ll explain why it matters.

OnlyFans makes money by allowing content creators to charge a subscription fee in order for you to access the content (mostly pictures and videos).

If you can download all of the content, then you don’t have much reason to maintain a subscription.

That’s bad for the bottom line.

So, OnlyFans does not provide easy ways to download content.

OnlyShares is claiming that it enables these downloads so that you don’t have to be on OnlyFans to view content—once it’s downloaded.

That’s the gist of the tool.

There are also claims that OnlyShares can unlock content that you aren’t subscribed to, and that’s a giant red flag.

Before I get into legitimacy and safety, I want to talk about functionality.

OnlyShares does not do what it claims.

I tested the site (in a safe environment) just so that I could properly answer this question for you.

OnlyShares asked me to provide account information and then add more and more apps, accounts, and other third-party resources.

It was an endless loop, and nothing ever actually went back to OnlyFans.

Eventually, the whole thing crashed my test environment.

There was never a point where I was able to use OnlyShares to download anything at all from OnlyFans.

So, it doesn’t work as advertised.

#1 Is OnlyShares Legit?

OnlyShares is not legitimate.

Let me emphasize this.

It is not a legitimate website, and using it is risky.

Now, it is an actual website.

You can type in the address, and it will pull up a website.

It’s just that the site doesn’t operate as advertised.

It is not affiliated with OnlyFans in any way, and even if it did help with downloads, its very existence would be a violation of OnlyFans terms and properly even break copyright laws.

But, OnlyShares doesn’t work.

In fact, it’s a scam website.

It’s very likely that the endless loop of downloading new resources and putting in account information is just a means of stealing your personal information and selling it to as many third parties as possible.

Some of the things OnlyShares asked me to download or install were clearly malicious, and that’s probably why my test environment eventually crashed.

There’s nothing legitimate about this site, and I strongly recommend that you don’t use it.

In case that’s not compelling enough, I’m not the only one who came to this conclusion.

Sites like Scam-Detector have reviewed the site and come to the same conclusion.

It sets off all of the red flags.

It’s also woefully inadequate in terms of web security, but I’ll get into that in the next section.

It’s a scam, and I’ll keep saying it just to make sure it sinks in.

#2 Is OnlyShares Safe?

Let’s talk about safety.

For starters, anything that is clearly a scam is not safe.

People are trying to steal your information, most likely to try to steal your identity or your money.

I don’t need to go deeper into this, right?

Even outside of the scam elements, OnlyShares is bad.

The website offers just about nothing in terms of general security.

Even if OnlyShares was harmless, its security is so bad that malicious parties would be able to target it to steal your information.

So, it’s not safe to use at all.

Even if you use fake information with the site, it’s going to try to get you to install malicious software.

In every way, this site is completely unsafe.

What About Other Websites Similar to (3 Sites)

While researching OnlyShares, I saw a number of other sites and apps that claimed to offer similar outcomes.

The general idea is that you can create an account with the site, and then it will unlock OnlyFans content for you.

I’ll spend a minute talking about a few of the ones that came up more often than the rest.

After that, I’ll explain to you how you can tell if something is legitimate or not.

First up is Thotsbay.

This claims to basically do the same stuff as OnlyShares.

It’s supposed to allow you to download any and all content on OnlyFans.

It’s also clearly a scam.

I won’t go as deep on this site as I did on OnlyShares because it will get redundant.

Thotsbay has the exact same list of problems.

The site is not secure.

It doesn’t actually do what it claims to do.

It asks you to add information to a ton of different accounts, and it tries to get you to download malware.

This site is not legitimate.

It is not safe. I highly recommend you stay away from it.

#2 OnlyFans Premium Account Generator

A young male using a phone

This site (I’m definitely not going to provide a web address) claims that it can generate a premium account access key for you.

With that key, you can get an OnlyFans premium account.

With that premium account, you have unlimited access to all OnlyFans content.

It’s a master pass, so you never have to subscribe to another content creator again.

Does this sound too good to be true?

Your instincts are right.

This is yet another scam, and I’m really going to drive this one home.

First off, OnlyFans doesn’t have premium accounts.

That’s an internet myth.

There is no special account where you pay a huge fee for unlimited access on the site.

If you want content, you have to subscribe to the creator who posted it.

That’s defined in OnlyFans contracts.

If they offered a premium account, it would put them in violation of those accounts, and they would be at risk of losing huge amounts of money.

Anything claiming that it can give you a premium account is a lie.

People on the internet who claim to have premium accounts are lying.

It. Does. Not. Exist.

I didn’t test the account generator directly, so I can’t tell you for certain that it is malicious.

I can tell you that what it claims to do is fundamentally impossible, so I’m willing to assume it’s a scam. 

#3 Any Offer for Free OnlyFans Content

I saw a lot of other one-off mentions of sites and apps that can unlock or download OnlyFans content.

They’re all fake.

Now, there probably are third-party tools out there that would enable the download of OnlyFans content—after you subscribe.

But, such tools are definitely in violation of OnlyFans terms.

The site does not generally allow you to download content.

The only exception is if you’re the one who created and uploaded the content in the first place.

And even then, it’s not always easy to do.

There are a lot of malicious people on the internet playing to these myths, and there will never be a shortage of claims that you can get free content or downloads with this magic service or app or whatever.

They’re all lies.

They’re probably all scams.

How Do You Spot Bad Sites and Apps Similar to (3 Ways)

I can’t possibly list every fake site and app out there by name.

A lot of people are trying to trick you with promises of access to OnlyFans content.

So, how can you spot that bad stuff for yourself?

In general, they’re all bad.

If you want OnlyFans content, then go through OnlyFans.

It’s that simple.

Still, there are three particular red flags that you should know about.

#1 OnlyFans Is in the Name

There is only one OnlyFans, and the name is legally registered as a trademark.

That means that any third party that uses “OnlyFans” in the name is potentially violating copyright laws.

I can promise you that OnlyFans is not licensing its name out to third-party companies that are offering you free content or other ways to hurt OnlyFans profit margins.

That would be a terrible plan.

So, if something has “OnlyFans” in the name and is offering access to free content, then you need to understand something.

That person or group is very comfortable with breaking the law, and it’s very likely that they’re willing to break the law when it comes to dealing with you too.

#2 “Premium”

Another red flag is the claim that you can get a premium account.

I’ve already harped on this.

Premium OnlyFans accounts don’t exist.

Anyone selling such an account (even if they claim it’s free) is already lying to you.

Why do they need to deceive you?

What’s the real goal?

They’re probably trying to steal your information.

Premium account claims regularly pair with scams.

#3 “Free”

The same goes for anything that emphasizes free content.

You know the old saying.

If it seems too good to be true, it is.

“Free” is a word that is trying to get your attention.

It’s a red flag.

Run the other way.
