If you enable two-factor authentication, you'll have to enter both your password and a verification code every time you log in to Pinterest. Once set up, you'll receive an email to confirm that two-factor authentication is active on your Pinterest account.

You can link a phone number to one account. If you want to enable two-factor authentication on more than one account, you'll need more than one phone number with texting enabled.
