We asked parents how easy they thought it would be for a child to pretend to be older in order to sign up to Tumblr, and whether they had to verify their phone number or email address. Based on these answers, Tumblr has received a neutral rating for its sign up process.
Here are some of the things parents said:
from choosing a user name, it was very easy to sign up. With a valid email
address, you can sign up as anybody. Absolutely no measures in place to verify
ID or age.” – Father of a 13 yr old girl
quite happy with the registration system.
It was easy to understand and follow and gave full information.” –
