How to Delete Your Tumblr Account

First of all, let’s make an important difference between an account and a Tumblelog. If you want to delete a secondary/alternate Tumblelog, here is how to do it.  Now, if you really mean deleting your account, then you just have to visit this link, enter your password and that’s it, you will automatically be gone from  Tumblr.

This is the only way you can delete your main blog from Tumblr.  However, you could also delete all your posts and change your tumblelog’s url name, but you would still have all your followers, and you can’t get rid of them.  Also take into account that after deleting your Tumblr account, and if you had an additional blog that had another member besides you, that Tumblelog will still be up and running, since there’s not an administrator option to regulate that.

    I don’t necessarily want to delete my Tumblr account. I signed on with a URL that I originally wanted to password protect with the URL that I created the T account with. When I go to create a password protected blog, the system tells me that the URL (the one I wanted to originally use to password protected) that I want to use is already in use by someone (that someone is ‘me’)! What do I do? Delete my Tumblr account and sign in again? How long do I have to wait to be able to use my own URL again? a few days? a month? Never?
    If someone knows the answer to this please let me know.

    I have a 16 year old daughter whose tumblr account was deleted last year. We had issues with fake accounts, bullying, and slanderous messages that were not true. PLEASE inform me how to remove all post, pictures, the url site as my child’s name is attached to it. I do not want this information in cyber space. PLEASE HELP!!!!!
