How to Log Out of Tumblr

By Nick Peers

Learn how to log in and out of your Tumblr account, as well as how to register a new account and recover a lost password.

Tumblr updates its blogging platform periodically and sometimes changes its user interface; the developers may change the position of various elements, such as the Log Out and Log In buttons. However, Tumblr always provides the means to log in and out of the system.

Logging In on Tumblr

Step 1

Open Tumblr in your favorite Web browser and click the Log In button. If you don't have a Tumblr account, fill the Sign Up form and click Sign Up to create a new account.

Tip

To avoid phishing Web pages that attempt to collect your personal information without your consent, look at the address bar. If the Tumblr URL starts with HTTPS and has a lock icon next to it, the page is secure and uses a valid SSL certificate.

Step 2

Logging in to the Tumblr account.

Type your email and password into the Email and Password fields and click the Log In button to log in to your Tumblr account.

Tip

If you can't log in, click the Forgot Password link and follow the instructions to reset the password.

Logging Out of Tumblr

Step 1

Locating the Sign Out link in the Account menu.

Click the Account icon — this is in the top right corner and looks like a person's silhouette — and then click the Log Out link in the Account menu.

Step 2

Confirming the action and logging out.

Click OK to confirm the action and log out of Tumblr. If you change your mind and want to remain logged in, click the Cancel button.

Tip

You are logged out immediately after confirming; you can't use any Tumblr services until you log back in.
