Tumblr Safe Mode Bypass: Turn off Safe Mode Tumblr without Account
Tumblr is a peerless place to express yourself as well as discover your daily fix of cool GIFs and memes. However, the NSFW content on that site has risen dramatically over recent years, so some adult-related blogs are curbed with a Safe Mode warning. Unfortunately, the Safe Mode lock also applies when you do not sign in with your Tumblr account. Don’t worry. If you’re an adult and don’t want to create an account to hang out on Tumblr, you will learn how to bypass Tumblr Safe Mode without account in this tutorial.

Part 2. How to Turn off Tumblr Safe Mode without Account
There’s really no purpose to waste time creating a Tumblr account just to defuse Safe Mode. There are certain websites that let you browse on Tumblr without restriction.
Here are several good examples:
TumblViewr emphasizes a minimalistic design, but will not let that fool you.

You can also determine the quality of the posts in SD, HD, and MD — that images load in to manage bandwidth.
GramUnion will let you post-hastily access any Tumblr blog confined or unrestricted by simply inserting its name. In fact, it’s even way cooler that Tumblr itself will due to the fact that you can filter posts by media type — image, video, audio, etc. You can also embed hashtags to easily bring up related posts and blogs.
You can also sign in using your Facebook or Google accounts and label/bookmark blogs and posts for surveying later.
