How to Change Your Pinterest Password

Last updated: January 15, 2017 - 3:10pm EST

If you want to tighten up the security a bit on your Pinterest account, you can change your password.  If you use Pinterest a lot, you might want to change your password every so often in order to keep snoopers out of your account.  Here's how to do that.

Steps to change a Pinterest password

  1. Go to www.pinterest.com in your web browser and log in.

  2. Click on your name in the top-right corner to access your personal Pinterest page.

  3. Click the gear icon () next to Edit Profile and select Account Settings from the drop-down menu that appears.

  4. Under the "Account Basics" category, in the "Password" section, click Change Your Password.

  5. Click in the box labelled "Old Password" and type in the password that you're currently using.  Then, click in the box labelled "New Password" and type in the password that you would like to use for this account.  Then, click in the box labelled "New Password, Again" and type in a copy of your new password.  (All of them will appear as bullet points to protect them from prying eyes.)  Finally, click Change Password.

There!  Your password for your Pinterest account has been changed!  Be sure to write it down somewhere so that you don't forget it, and be sure to store it in a safe place!
