Report impersonation

We don't allow accounts that mislead or deceive others. We may update, transfer or permanently suspend accounts that do so. If someone is pretending to be you, contact us by selecting Report harassment or exposed private information.

When completing the contact form, please provide us with:

  • The URL of the Pinterest profile you want us to review
  • Your authentic Pinterest profile, if you have one
  • Any other info we can use to verify your identity, such as a Facebook or Twitter profile

When we look into reports of impersonation, we check to see whether a profile is actually pretending to be someone else. We'll consider the profile information, Pin descriptions, comments and board titles.

Sometimes a user might have the same name as you or have a similar username, but they might not be impersonating you. If that's the case, that account might not be violating our Community Guidelines.

You can also report profiles impersonating well-known public figures using the same process.

If you represent a company, brand or organisation and you want to claim a username or report content for trademark reasons, check out our Trademark page.
