A Step-by-Step Guide To Deleting Your Pinterest Account


You’ve decided it’s time to quit Pinterest. That’s totally understandable—the platform can be insanely addictive. But before you can say goodbye, you need to delete your account. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do it.

How to Temporarily Deactivate a Pinterest Account

The first thing you’ll want to do is deactivate your account. To do this, go to the “Settings” tab on the top right-hand corner of the page and select “Deactivate Account.”

It’s not a permanent solution. If you change your mind, you can always reactivate your account later. Deactivating your account will stop Pinterest from showing your pins to other people, but your boards and pins will remain.

Removing Pins and Boards Before Deleting a Pinterest Account

If you’re sure that you want to delete your Pinterest account, the first thing you’ll need to do is remove all of the Pins and Boards from your account. This will make the process go a little more smoothly—and it’ll also make it harder for someone else to start using your Pinterest account if you change your mind later on.

To remove a Pin, just hover over it and click the Delete button. To remove a Board, go to Board Settings and click the Delete Board button.

When you’re done removing pins and boards, go to your account settings and scroll down to the bottom of the page. Click the Delete Your Account button and follow the instructions to delete your account.

So you’ve decided that you no longer want a Pinterest account. That’s perfectly understandable! Deleting your account is a pretty simple process, but there are a few things you should know before you get started.

1) Log in to Pinterest and go to https://www.pinterest.com/settings/delete_account

2) Click the “Delete my account” button

3) Enter your password and click the “Delete Account” button

4) You’ll be asked to confirm your decision. Click the “Delete Account” button one more time to finish the process.

Considerations Before Deleting Your Pinterest Account

Before you delete your Pinterest account, there are a few things to consider. The first is that if you want to save any of your saved pins, you’ll need to do so before deleting your account. It does not keep a record of pins after an account is deleted, so it’s important to take this step before erasing your profile.

You should also double-check that you aren’t subscribed to any boards or shared boards. Once all of these steps are completed, and you are ready to delete your account permanently, then it’s time to do the actual deleting process.

Unlinking Other Accounts Associated With the Pinterest Profile

Now, you need to make sure that all accounts associated with your Pinterest profile are properly unlinked. If you have connected your account to other social media platforms, it’s best to unlink them first so that you don’t accidentally delete posts or content from these other networks as well.

To do this, log into the account associated with the Pinterest account and go to the security settings page. Here, you should see an option that says “Disconnect from Pinterest”—just click on this and it will automatically unlink the accounts. If there is more than one social media account connected, repeat this process for each one.

It’s also a good idea to take a look at any third-party apps or websites connected to your Pinterest profile as well. Check each of these sites for any authorization requests connected to your Pinterest profile and click “Deny” if you find any. Once all those steps have been taken care of, you’re ready to delete your account!

Afterword: Tips for a Successful Digital Detox

Now that you’ve permanently deleted your Pinterest account, you may be feeling relieved — and a little overwhelmed by the newfound freedom. It’s important to remember that this is an ongoing process, and it’s important to set yourself up for success from the start.

Take the time to find out what works best for you — whether it’s cutting back on time spent on social media, disabling notifications or using apps to block websites. Start small; even a small change can have a big impact.

It might also help to remember why you decided to take a digital detox: to create more meaningful connections with the people and things in your life, rather than just scrolling endlessly through a never-ending news feed. So don’t forget to seize the opportunity, and appreciate all of the beauty and wonder that life has to offer.


So, if you’re ready to delete your Pinterest account, follow these simple steps. But be warned: Once your account is deleted, it can’t be recovered, so be absolutely sure that you want to delete it!

First, open Pinterest and sign in.

On the main screen, click the three lines.

Scroll down and click “Settings.”

Click “Delete Your Account.”

Enter your password and click “Delete Account.”

That’s it! Your Pinterest account is now deleted.
