Sometimes, on any social media, there are situations where you need to block a particular user and stop them from contacting you and viewing your profile. In case this happens, Tumblr provides you with two easy ways to block a user and stop them from being your follower. In this OneHowTo article we explain how to block someone from seeing your Tumblr.
How to make a Password Protected Tumblr Blog
The first method is to block people by creating a Password protected blog in Tumblr. When you create a password protected blog, only those people who have your password can read and comment on your blog post. This method is most convenient for those people who want to share their blog post with few people and block the rest. To create a password protected blog take the following steps:
- At first visit the dashboard page where you can see the list of all your blog on the top right side of the page.
- Beside the name of your primary blog you will find an upside down arrow. Click on that arrow. A drop – down menu will open. Look at the bottom of the menu and you will find the option – Create a New Blog. Click on that option.
- In the next page you will be asked to enter the title and the URL for your new blog. Enter your desired title and URL.
- Below the URL option you will find Privacy. After it there is a box and beside the box it is written – Password Protect this blog. Click on the box and a tick mark will appear in it. Now enter your desired password. Finally at the bottom click on Create Blog and your new password protected blog is created.
Share your password with those people with whom you want to share your blog posts. Start blogging!
How to Block an Individual User or Follower on Tumblr
