Had enough of Pinterest for a while, and want to take a break? If you’re not having fun anymore or it’s just not useful and you want to leave it for good, we’ve got the steps here to help you put your account on hiatus... or on permanent vacation.
If you need some pictures to help you through the process and a few more details, be sure to read the details instructions below.
Go to www.pinterest.com in your web browser and sign in.
Click your profile icon in the top-right corner to go to your personal page.
Underneath your name, next to Edit Profile, click the settings button and then select Account Settings.
At the bottom of the "Account Basics" section, next to "Account," click Deactivate Account.
Pinterest will ask you why you want to deactivate your account, so click a button beside the reason that best says why you're leaving. Based on your choice, you will get some advice on how to give yourself a better experience, and/or allow you to type in a few more details about your problem (which is totally optional).
When you're ready, click Deactivate My Account. Or, if you never want to use your account again and want to say goodbye to Pinterest for good, click Permanently Close My Account. You will be asked to confirm this choice through receiving an email about this latter choice, as it is much more difficult to reverse.
And that’s how you delete your Pinterest account! If you’re looking for something similar in your life, but Pinterest just wasn’t doing the trick, be sure to give this article on the best websites like Pinterest a read – you may find something even better!
