Forced Safe Mode just went live. Go into your account settings to check for the changes.

Here’s how to turn it off:


  • Leave the Tumblr app for a sec and go to the main Settings app on your device.
  • Scroll down and tap “Tumblr.”
  • Look for “Safe Mode” and adjust the settings to match your comfort level.


  • Go to settings: Tap the little person in the tab bar, then the gear icon in the top right, then “General settings.”
  • Tap “Filtering,” then
  • Flip the Safe Mode switch on.


  • Go to settings: Click the little fella in the top bar, then click settings.
  • Scroll to “Filtering,” and click the Safe Mode switch on.

This is so fucking absurd. Do this now.

Yep, just hit me a few hours ago. Took me a bit to fix it, but now all’s fine again.
