How to block tags on tumblr – Explained

Tumblr uses tags to categorize posts, rather than following them, you can use specific tags to filter posts. Here are the steps to block tags on Tumblr.

Tumblr is an open platform that has a variety of content on the platform, and with a free platform like Tumblr, it’s very easy for you to come across content that you don’t want to see on your feed. The platform offers all sorts of information about products that you can scroll through endlessly and never get bored. If you have a few hours to kill before work or some other task, Tumblr is the best platform for you as it can keep you glued for hours, and sometimes the unwanted content can be irritating.

But how do you filter the unwanted content from your feed? Tumblr uses tags to categorize posts, and most of the stuff is based on the blogs followed or on searches. Rather than following them, you can use specific tags to filter out posts from ruining your day.


Let’s see how to block tags on Tumblr

Blocking tags on Desktop

Blocking tags through desktop can be done by visiting Settings panel, and any changes are dashboard feed are reflected immediately.

Step 1. Click the Account icon on the Tumblr dashboard and then select “Settings.”

Step 2. Click the “Edit” icon in the Filtering section and then add the tag that you want to block. Click the “Add” button once done.

Step 3. Insert any tag that you want to block and then head back to the dashboard. Posts related to the tag will be hidden.


Filtering tags on mobile

The tags filtered on the desktop should sync right with the mobile, but you can still add tags to the list from Tumblr’s Android or iOS apps.

Step 1. On the Tumblr mobile app, tap the Account icon and tap the Settings icon.

Step 2. Tap on “General settings” and then tap “Filtering.”

Step 3. Tap the “+New” option and enter the tag you want to filter into the pop-up box. Repeat for other tags that you wish to block and then head back to the dashboard.

Note: Just like desktop, you can block the Not Safe For Work (NSFW) content from showing up on the feed by turning on the toggle next to Safe Mode.
