Protect your account

It’s important to protect your information against unknown logins and suspicious activity. We do our best to keep your account safe but here are a couple of additional actions you can take to secure it.

Enable two-factor authentication

Turn on two-factor authentication to use your phone and your password for extra security. 

Use a strong password

  • Use numbers and symbols to make your password stronger
  • Use a unique password for your Pinterest account
  • Keep your password secret – we'll never ask for your password by email, instant message or phone

Watch where you log in

  • Only enter your password on pinterest.com or on the official Pinterest, Inc. app – remember, our app is always free
  • Check the address bar in your browser to make sure it ends in pinterest.com and not pinterest.somethingelse.com
  • If you're not sure whether you should log in, go to pinterest.com to be safe
  • Never answer suspicious requests for personal information and be cautious about any deals that seem too good to be true

Protect your devices

  • Make sure your computer and browser are up to date with the most recent updates and anti-virus software. Check if your browser is up to date.
  • Only install browser add-ins and plug-ins from publishers you trust.
  • Don't open attachments or install software from an email that claims to be from Pinterest.
