How to Unfollow on Tumblr (Brief Guide)

Part social networking service, part blogging platform, Tumblr is one of the favorite social media platforms of teens and young adults. With its easy to use highly customizable features, Tumblr offers a space to share your interests and hobbies, connect with like-minded people, create an art portfolio, or just blog about what is on your mind with fun videos GIFs. Tumblr users can follow as many blogs as they like. This may cause your feed to become overcrowded with content you don’t care for after a while. Also, you may like to cut ties with annoying bloggers or inactive blogs. If this is your case, we made a step by step guide on how to unfollow blogs on Tumblr.

How to Mass Unfollow on Tumblr

How to Mass Unfollow on Tumblr

It is a little bit more tricky to mass unfollow all the accounts you are following. Tumblr doesn’t have an “Unfollow All” option, but if your following count is just too great to unfollow manually, you can use an unfollow script using Imacros for Google Chrome. 

  1. Open Google browser and Imacros.
  2. Copy and paste the “Unfollow All” code. You can find the code online.
  3. Log in to your account and open your following list.
  4. Change the number of loop according to how many blogs you want to unfollow.
  5.  Press “Play Loop” and let the magic work.

You can check out video tutorials about this to get a better understanding.

Frequently Asked Questions

You can use third-party apps like Stalkr to track your Tumblr followers and find out who unfollowed you or who isn’t following you back. 

While Tumblr doesn’t have an “unfollow all” option, you can unfollow blogs using a code that works as a “unfollow all” button. For detailed information, check out online tutorials that show how to use the code. 

Tumblr doesn’t notify users that they were unfollowed. So if the person you unfollowed is not using a follower tracking app, they won’t know you unfollowed unless they check their follower’s list. 

You have the option of “Blocking” a follower on Tumblr so that your site gets invisible to the blocked user. The blocked user also won’t be able to see your content in the search result or their dashboard, and they won’t be able to message you. To block a user, log in to your account, click on the gear icon and click “Block Other Users.” Type in the URL of the user you want to block in the text field and click the “Block” button.

To unfollow a deactivated blog, go to your following list, copy the username, and the deactivation code of the blog you want to unfollow. Type in the username and code after the Tumblr HTML. Load the page to unfollow.

    I unfollow someone on Tumblr when they start posting ugly content on their feed. Trying to declutter my feed from all inappropriate content.

    My main reason to unfollow on Tumblr is ugly content. Once they start sharing things I don’t want to see, I immedieately unfollow them.
