There are several ways to report spam on Tumblr:
- Report a post: From the dashboard or in search results, tap or click the share menu (paper airplane) at the bottom of the post, and hit “Report.”
- Report a message: Tap or click "Mark as spam" under the spammer's message. Note that "Mark as spam" won't appear if it's somebody you follow, or somebody you've already had a conversation with. But on mobile, you can always tap the three dots at the top of the conversation and choose "Mark as spam."
- Report a blog (web-only): From the dashboard or in search results, report an entire blog by hovering over the blog's avatar, clicking the little person silhouette, and clicking “Report.”
- Report fan mail (web-only): From the inbox, click the three dots at the bottom of a spammy message and choose “Report.”
If you need to report a whole blog or fan mail but don’t have access to a computer at the moment, you can use a mobile browser’s desktop view to report spam following the steps listed above. To get to the desktop view in iOS, open Safari and visit tumblr.com, log in, tap the share icon (little box with an arrow) at the bottom of the screen, and tap the gray “Request Desktop Site” button. On Android, open Internet or Chrome and visit tumblr.com, log in, tap the three dots icon in the top right-hand corner of the screen, and check the “Desktop View” box.
