Tumblr is a social media platform for microblogging. Founded in the year 2007, Tumblr allows users to share different types of short term blog in different formats. You can also privatize your account if you want to and control who sees your post. Tumblr currently has 23 million users all over the US starting from 13 years old. So, in the process of protecting below 18 years old from 18+ content, Tumblr had added a safety feature called the “Safe mode”.
When the Safe mode is enabled, it restricts any type of 18+ content from your account. But instead of categorizing and restricting only youngsters, the safe mode is on for every user, i.e. every new user or the old ones have their safe mode enabled in their Tumblr account by default. But if your line of work needs access to 18+ content, you must disable the Safe mode to remove restrictions. In this article, I am going to discuss a different way to disable Tumblr safe mode on different platforms. I am also going to share how to get Tumblr blogs from third-party sites as a bonus tip, so you don’t need logging in.
