What to do if you Tumblr account gets hacked - like ours :(
Here’s what the Tumblr support team says to do if you’ve been hacked:
Change the passwords and security questions that you use with your Tumblr and email accounts, and that you make sure your computer(s) are physically and digitally secure.
Your Tumblr password can be changed at https://tumblr.com/preferences.
- A lot of hackers will post through email, so also reset your mobile posting email address. To do this, click on your blog’s title at the top of your Dashboard or under the list icon at the top right of the Dashboard. Then click Settings on the right side of the screen. Scroll down to the “Post by Email” section and click the “Reset” button to the right.
How to prevent your account from being hacked:
- If you use Tumblr on a public computer, always use the Power Button Icon at the top of the Dashboard to log out of Tumblr at the end of your session.
- To ensure that your Tumblr account says safe, never enter your Tumblr credentials on any site other than www.tumblr.com. Always look for the green “Tumblr, Inc.” emblem in your browser at login as shown at http://staff.tumblr.com/post/15260097735/ev-cert. And, never install any software on your computer from a source you don’t know and trust.
