The Pinterest app for Android requires permissions. When the app is installed, we’ll ask you to grant the app permissions before the app takes any actions. These permissions allow you to more easily use the Pinterest app.

Depending on the permission(s) you grant, the Pinterest app will have access to your:

  • Camera so you can take a picture and create Pins or discover ideas inspired by anything you point your camera at with Lens
  • Contacts to suggest names or email addresses of people you may want to send Pins or messages to
  • Microphone so you can use your microphone to record audio when you use your camera to create Pins
  • Storage so you can use your own photos in Pins, save images from Pinterest to your device and allow us to store cached data
  • Your location so Pinterest can provide a better experience showing more relevant ads
