Safe Mode is here, Tumblr.
More control over what you see and what you don’t.
What’s Safe Mode?
Safe Mode filters sensitive content in your dashboard and your search results.
Who’s it for?
You, if you want it! Maybe you’re happy to see sensitive content when you’re scrolling through Tumblr, maybe you’re not. Safe Mode puts that choice in your hands.
How do I turn it on or off?
If you’re on the web or an Android device: Go to your account settings and flip the Safe Mode switch.
If you’re on iOS: Go to your phone’s Settings app, tap “Tumblr,” and you’ll see the Safe Mode settings down at the bottom.
(If you’re under 18: You’re not able to turn off Safe Mode until you’re older. You’ll just have to use your imagination.)
We’ve updated our Community Guidelines with some additional notes about being a good citizen of Tumblr. Check them out when you get a chance.
And don’t forget, we’ve got some other tools to help you ensure your time on Tumblr is safe and fun, namely blocking jerks and trolls and privacy controls for your blog. If you have questions about any of this, feel free to consult the help center.
Safe mode will be rolling out to all users over the next couple days.
