Reporting on Tumblr

Users can report abusive and inappropriate behaviour to Tumblr. They can also block other users. However, administrators aren’t reviewing content or monitoring what is going on unless someone reports something as inappropriate. Visit the Safety Centre via the button below to learn how to block on the site.
