Tumblr has released an update to its iOS app that contains a fix for a security issue that allowed user passwords to be compromised.

--
We have just released a very important security update for our iPhone and iPad apps addressing an issue that allowed passwords to be compromised in certain circumstances¹. Please download the update now.

If you’ve been using these apps, you should also update your password on Tumblr and anywhere else you may have been using the same password. It’s also good practice to use different passwords across different services by using an app like 1Password or LastPass.

Please know that we take your security very seriously and are tremendously sorry for this lapse and inconvenience.

You can download the Tumblr update from the App Store for free.

Nobody's porn is safe. Does anyone actually use tumblr for anything else?

Its not a website just for porn. Of course people use it for several other things. It all depends on what you follow. I usually don't ever have porn on my dash.
