Android permissions

The Pinterest app for Android requires permissions. When the app is installed, we’ll ask you for consent before the app takes any actions.

The app has access to:

  • Identity to send you push notifications
  • Contacts to suggest names or email addresses from your contacts when sending Pins or messages
  • Location to add a location to your Pin
  • Photos/Media/Files to Pin your own photos, save images to your device, and allow us to store cached data
  • Camera to take a picture and upload it as a Pin
  • Home settings and shortcuts to show you the number of new notifications on your Pinterest app icon
