SSL Is Now the Default on Tumblr
SSL (secure sockets layer) is finally the default for new blogs on Tumblr.
Security engineer Josh Hixson announced the move via tweet (embedded below), crediting fellow Tumblr security engineer Kelly Lum:
Thanks to @aloria, new @Tumblr blogs have SSL enabled by default! Steady progress towards a bright, HTTPS-only blog network future

Tumblr actually introduced its SSL option for blogs in February 2014, but it was not made the default until now.
