"Is there a way to make Tumblr blog private? A blog that already exists. I don't want to make a new one."

Every Tumblr user can create multiple blogs on the platform. Although the main default blog must remain public and accessible to all, any of the secondary Tumblr blogs associated with the account can be made private so that a password is required to gain access.

In some cases you may not want the blog to be viewable by the general public. If this is the case, add a password when creating a new Tumblr blog to make it private and restrict the blog to only reviewers that you choose.

How to Make Tumblr Blog to Private?

Follow the instruction to make a Tumblr blog private by password-protect.

  • Step 1. Go to and log in with your email address and password to view your dashboard.
  • Step 2. Click the blog you wish to lock on the main page of your Tumblr account and click Settings on the blog's menu.

  • Step 3. Go to the end of the page of the blog and you'll find the password section. Now, what you have to do is to click "Password protect this blog" and then choose a password to your Tumblr.
