Hiding your Tumblr blog from the web

If you want to control who has access to your blog content you can do so by using Tumblr’s new privacy options.

When you disable “Show this blog on the web:”

  • Anyone who tries to visit your blog on the web will be asked to login
  • Someone following your blog can only see your posts on their dashboard when they’re logged in
  • Logged-in users who know your blog exists can follow it from the follow page here: tumblr.com/following
  • There’s no sacrifice of social features! Your followers can read, like, reply to, and reblog your posts
  • You can still block anyone from following your blog

To hide a blog from the web, click “Settings” under the account menu at the top of the dashboard, then click the name of the blog you’d like to update on the right side of the page. Scroll down to the directory portion of your blog settings and toggle the “Show this blog on the web” option off.
