If you forget your password, you can request to reset your password. If you’re already logged in to your Pinterest account, you can change your password in your settings.

Tips for setting up a strong password:
  • Use a unique password that's hard to guess.
  • Use a combination of numbers and symbols.
  • Use a password that you'll be using only for your Pinterest account.
  • Keep your password secret. We'll never ask for your password by email, instant message or mobile device.
  • Learn more ways to protect your account.

    Note: Once you reset or change your password, you'll need to log back in to Pinterest on all of your devices, including when you log in with Facebook, Google or Apple.

    Reset your password

    If your password reset link is not working in your usual browser, try resetting it in a private Chrome, Firefox or Safari window. To open a private window, click File at the top of your screen, then click New Incognito Window for Chrome or New Private Window for Firefox and Safari.
