By on December 3rd, 2009

Tumblr is one of the most famous micro-blogging service which provides users with a easy way to post images, videos, links and more. We have a mini blog at Techie Notes, which runs on Tumblr and uses the custom domain name feature from them.

Tumblr just announced today that they are introducing password protected blogs. This new feature will allow users to password protect their blogs. Once a blog has been password protected, users who visit the blog can only access your posts if they have a valid password.

Password Protecting Blogs in Tumblr

Tumblr provides users with an option to password protect their blogs when they create a new one. Just select the checkbox next to Password protect this blogand provide a password for it.

You can password protect existing blogs by going to the customize page for your blog.

What We Would Like to See

This is definitely a great way for people to create private blogs and share them with only a select few, however, it would be also be nice if they could add support to password protect individual posts instead of the entire blog.
