How To Delete A Tumblr Account When Someone Dies

What is Tumblr?

Tumblr is a popular social media networking site and microblogging platform. It allows users to post multimedia and other content to short-form blogs.

So you know what Tumblr is, but how do you delete a Tumblr account? Permanently deactivating a Tumblr account can be done through the site’s website.

How To Delete A Tumblr Account:

  • Log in to your Tumblr account
  • Under the ‘Account’ section, go to ‘Settings’
  • At the bottom right corner of the screen, select ‘Delete Account’
  • Under ‘Account Settings’, scroll down and select ‘Deactivate Account’
  • Confirm the deletion by re-entering the email and password and then click on ‘Delete Everything’

Things To Note

  • Deleting a Tumblr account means that all the primary and secondary blogs associated with it will also be deleted. 
  • Once deleted, there is no way to recover it again, unlike with some other popular social media platforms such as Instagram and Meta.

Now that you know how to delete a Tumblr account, you might also realize the complications that may arise when deleting the account of a deceased person.
