A bot is a computer program made to automatically scrape, crawl, or attack Pinterest.
If you see a "We've detected a bot!" message when trying to use Pinterest, we detected an automated bot on your network and blocked your account.
We block bots because they can slow down Pinterest for other people and may even be malicious. You can learn more in our Acceptable Use Policy.
If you're not running a bot, you might share a network with someone who is. This is common with corporate VPNs, proxy services and hosted web applications like Amazon EC2 and Google App Engine.
If we detect a bot, we won't remove the block until you resolve the issue. Try logging in to Pinterest from a different internet connection.
