Account suspension

To keep the Pinterest community safe, we may suspend accounts that violate our Community Guidelines. If your account was suspended, you'll see a suspension notice when you try to log in.

How it works

We make sure content meets our Community Guidelines through both automated processes and human review. Pins, comments, photos, messages, or accounts dedicated to policy-violating content can result in account suspension. 

Accounts may be suspended due to single or repeat violations of our Community Guidelines concerning: 

  • Pinner Safety (for example: hateful speech, pornography, graphic imagery and misinformation)
  • Account security (including impersonation and third-party logins) 
  • Spam
  • Intellectual property

Appeal an account suspension

If you think we shouldn't have suspended your Pinterest account, get in touch with us. Once you send in a request, we'll take a look at it and get back to you.

For information about copyright and intellectual property appeals, read our Copyright policy.

If your account wasn’t suspended and you’re still having trouble logging in to Pinterest, read our tips for common login issues.
