Search safe mode doesn't work 2/5
I loved the app until this recent update but now this "safe mode switch" DOES NOT WORK! I change it to off I open the app then check my settings and then it's on again!
I love this app... it's my safe haven for awesome ideas, fancy inspirational quotes, beauty galore with a dash of humor
Safe mode / safe search is annoying!!!!!! 2/5
By Super luv 1890
I took my account off of safe mode but everything is still blocked I can see like two things out of my whole timeline. Please fix this it's is supper annoying and inconvenient.
i'm registered as a non minor and i still can't turn safe mode off 1/5
i put my birthday as 1995 when signing up for tumblr and even i can't turn safe mode off. i've heard from many people that some of the posts censored aren't even nsfw.. please get rid of safe mode or refine what counts as "nsfw". regular funny posts with curse words shouldn't be hidden from non minors. please fix.
dude.. what? 1/5
pull yourselves together tumblr staff... the safe mode feature is actual trash.
safe mode should fix all the porn bots, not block random text posts for minors... smh
Great app for anything involving blogs 5/5
Great app for nearly anything you're looking for. It's a giant blog site basically. If you're looking to see all kinds of other people's ideas and experiences than this is the app for you. It can be confusing at first but it's not too hard to get the hang of it.
safe search review 1/5
By Oka Tojiko
i can't turn off safe search!! i put it on "don't hide anything" then i exit the app and turn it back on then it won't let me search up ANYTHING. then i checked and the settings turned it back on safe search. do us all a favor and just get rid of safe search all together. might as well get a laptop and use the desktop version. the mobile version is straight up bad.
Pretty cool 4/5
It great but it is a bit glitchy at times. But rArelY
Garbage Fire 1/5
Everyone's been begging for years for a solution to the epidemic of porn blogs using the site to scam google into thinking their sites are trustworthy, but the new "safe search" doesn't properly block nsfw content, instead blocking tons of sfw content including a majority of lgbt posts.
No one likes the new safe search 1/5
So much stuff is being blocked off my dash and I don't follow any nsfw blogs at all. No one likes this new safe search crap. Most people are probably lying about their age anyway. Someone probably said they were like 20 when they're really like 13. This update is just irritating. Please get rid of this feature. No one asked for it. No one wanted it. It's not even worth it.
Great work! Totally love it.
All Content Gone With Safe Search 1/5
The tumblr app is absolutely unusable with the recent addition of "safe" search. I'm an adult who doesn't need my internet censored, and that's exactly what tumblr is Insisting on. Every time I relaunch the app, safe search turns itself back on, and I have to go back into system settings on the main iPhone settings app. Here's the kicker, safe mode still stays on even after you turn it off, because you need to relaunch to reset it, but doing so turns it back on. Tumblr, you've lost me. Your programmers are a bunch of yahoos who should stick to making adware for windows xp.
Videos load but never play! The app crashes all the time. Please fix it!!!
I really like this one
Opening app?? 5/5
I can never open my app anymore. It's like every time I wanna go on Tumblr it doesn't open.. I log out log back in.. delete the app. Every other day.. also I think we should change the color background.. something new.. still 5 stars though..
I honestly love this app but this new safe search content thing is bull, all it blocks are completely safe posts like tf...
Love it 5/5
I enjoy Tumbler, it's my first time using it and I have had no issues at all! Love the app
Had to google search 4/5
Safe search is annoying but I found a way to bypass it on google. Just have to change it in your phone settings.
Fix safe search 1/5
By Noah W 23
It blocks every single post whether it's NSFW or not. I literally cannot use it anymore.
Just restore the old version. 2/5
Get rid of the safe search already and just fix the bugs. The app was fine till now.
App does not open 1/5
By Mary Ana
crashes whenever i try to use it
Worst update ever 1/5
A lot of posts that are marked sensitive or explicit are the total opposite. I know for a fact one particular post was about spiders... SMALL, DRAWN, FICTIONAL, spiders, and it was marked "sensitive material". I can't even turn safe mode off because it won't show up in settings for the computer and doesn't turn of at all on mobile. I've seen many other complaints as well that LGBT posts have been blocked, which is ironic considering its Pride Month. This "update" needs to be retracted. The old safe mode was much more efficient.
New update somehow managed to make this whole hell site worse 1/5
The thing where you're supposed to be able to turn safe mode on/off genuinely resets itself to on every time you try to turn it off also this blocks totally benign stuff also I am SO tired please just let me die and never have to use this app again
Really awful safe search 1/5
That's really all I can say about it, it doesn't stop anyone nsfw from following you, doesn't stop a lot of nsfw posts from showing up, and still manages to block sfw lgbtq+ content, as well as RANDOM posts, all sfw
I can post Gifs!! 5/5
Ecchi Anime and Hentai Gifs to be precise! Perfect for a Hentai like myself
Worst update 1/5
By 18 and frustrated
I've used tumblr for many years, mobile being nearly my sole usage of the site. However, times have clearly changed. I'm 18 and I literally can not turn off this stupid "sensitive content" nonsense! I was trying to view a recent post from an artist whose content has never once been nsfw from my time following them. It randomly censors posts that don't correlate to what they said they were censoring with this update. And no matter how many times I attempt to turn of this useless thing it immediately turns back on again despite my age (which I would bet is probably older considering how long ago I made my account). Just use twitter or instagram I suppose since this dumpster fire is only growing bigger
Can't turn Safe Mode Off 1/5
By Not 21 Savage
General settings goes back to on once I leave the app
Safe search update is horrible 1/5
By tired of bs with this app
with this new feature, it is almost pointless for me to get on the app because so many posts are blocked. This is ruining my experience with Tumblr. Tumblr should not be the one who gets to decide what I do or don't see on my dashboard. If this is not fixed soon, I will likely be deleting the app.
seriously????? annoying and defective. 1/5
instead of just REMOVING the bots you began censoring things that didnt need to be censored and leaving the yucky gunk UNBLURRED. i cant turn it off either since im a minor. you totally broke this system. i used tumblr for a lot of art references which contained tasteful nudity and now i cannot even view the slightest suggestive thing!!!!!!!! way to go, dumblr.
Safe Search 1/5
The safe search feature is absolutely horrendous. So many of the posts I wish to browse are unavailable to me when I know for a fact that they are not NSFW. Safe search is the worst update by far and is just downright annoying.
great app !! 5/5
I love this app so much, it's so enjoyable. and although it has its flaws, it's super fun to use and entertaining 10/10 recommend (-: !!

Safe Search 🙄 1/5
By Malik 👑💍
I'm not able to see posts that I know for a fact are SFW. I've followed the steps of turning safe search off and it keeps enabling itself!
Bring back touch id 1/5
By Fester junior
Bring back touch id
Very user-friendly! 5/5
Even more-so than the desktop version in my opinion! Downloading the app, with it's quick share features over multiple accounts, totally sold me on Tumblr! Two things I would mention though is 1) I wish I could search through my follower blog list. 2) Sometimes when I'm turning a photo to landscape view it causes the app to freeze. Both minor things though! =)

Fix the safe search 1/5
Safe search is blocking most if not all content, except for blocking what it was made to block.
Fix it or give everyone the option to remove it.
Follow the right things and you'll love the app
Safe mode is the stupidest update this site has gotten and legit ive been part of this site for 3 years, im recently over the age of 18 but PLEASE GET RID OF SAFESEARCH IT BLOCKS INNOCENT POSTS AND EVEN AFTER I TURNED IT OFF DID IT TURN OFF NOPE
An annoyed 16 year old girl 1/5
Honestly, this app was great beforehand but now I CANT SEE ANYTHING BECAUSE OF THIS NEW UPDATE!! Everything that I had (NSFW & SFW) is now GONE or taken over by some message that says "this may content sensitive media.". Like NO ONE IN THEIR RIGHT MIND SHOULD SEE THAT!! I've tried EVERYTHING and I mean EVERYTHING to get rid of this stupid safe search but then I find out ITS PERMANENT UNTIL IM 18! EXCUSE ME?! At least have the OPTION to turn it back on/off!! Change it back to how it used to be and then I'll be better
What is going on? 1/5
Why can't I sign into the app? It'll say my email doesn't exist but then when I tried to make an account it says that it already exists so why can't I log in. Plus I can log in fine on an actual computer. Tumblr needs to fix this asap.
Safe Mode 1/5
You screwed it up with safe mode. Good job
Can't even open the app anymore 1/5
By Juju blocks
Don't like writing
App won't even open. Crashes everytime, no matter how many times I reinstall it.
SAFE SEARCH ANNOYING 1/5
Really Tumblr? Again? First of all it blocks so much off my page that I know is not NSFW and once I do go to my settings to turn Safe Search off it automatically turn on again by itself so I can't see anything on my page!!!! So frustrating and annoying!
Great app 4/5
By You plus me to the end
Love it so much
Safesearch is HORRIBLE 1/5
At this point, 90% of my feed is blocked and I'm sick of it. Remove this update.
Safe mode is terrible 1/5
Everytime I go to my settings and change the safe mode to "don't hide anything" it still blocks the sensitive content and I'm not a fan and it's super annoying and inconvenient to most users, I feel like I'm missing out on some good posts! Please fix asap!!!
Tumblr was good before the update. If you make an account, say you're at least 18 no matter what. Wish I could give negative stars for this stupidity.
