This tutorial is for Tumblr users who uses a username (or email ID) that is not from @Yahoo.com

As of this year 2017, Tumblr has an error on script. You cannot delete your blog even though you type the correct password.

3 Steps to Delete your Tumblr Account

  1. Delete your Yahoo account
  2. Reset Tumblr Password
  3. Delete the Blog

You may ask why should I delete a Yahoo account? Well it’s because Tumblr merged with Yahoo. If you registered to Tumblr using for example a gmail email account, then Tumblr will create for you a Yahoo account. But if you used a  Yahoo email ID, DO NOT CONTINUE. This process will delete the Yahoo email account.

Please continue if your Tumblr username is not from Yahoo.

Firstly, delete the Yahoo account:
https://login.yahoo.com/account/delete-user

Secondly, change your Tumblr Password:
https://www.tumblr.com/forgot_password

And lastly, login to Tumblr and go to settings
https://www.tumblr.com/login

delete Tumblr blog settings

Select your blog and at the bottom click delete account.

Thats it! You just deleted your Tumblr account.
