A rate limit block is a temporary block that may be placed automatically on your account if we notice that you've repeatedly performed the same action too many times in a short period of time. This is to prevent spam on Pinterest and to keep Pins working properly.
You might hit a block if you:
- Log in a lot
- Comment on Pins very quickly
- Post the same comment many times
- Follow a lot of people in a short period of time
- Add or save a lot of Pins from the same website quickly
To prevent future blocks:
- Try not to do the same thing repeatedly
- Vary your actions by doing different things
If you’re currently blocked, wait a few minutes before trying again. If you’re still experiencing trouble, most limits are removed automatically within 24 hours.
