Report harassment and cyberbullying

We take all reports of cyberbullying and harassment seriously. If a conversation rises to the level of bullying or harassment of a specific person, we'll remove it.

Not all unkind language violates our bullying policies. People criticising celebrities, people in the news, religion or other topics of public interest will generally be OK.

There are two things we look for when determining if something should be removed for harassment:

  • The person being harassed must be a private person, not a public or newsworthy figure.
  • It must be clear who is being harassed. This means the Pin includes a person’s name, initials, date of birth or picture.

If you’re uncomfortable interacting with someone on Pinterest, you can block them.

If you’re the target of harassment or cyberbullying:

  • Stop interacting with the person harassing you
  • Block the person to prevent them from following you or interacting with your Pins
  • Report the harassing Pins or person
  • If you’re ever concerned about your safety, contact the police
