Claim your Instagram, Etsy, or YouTube account

Claim your Instagram, Etsy, or YouTube account to share your content directly from these accounts to Pinterest. Any content you share will automatically be attributed to you to help people find more of your content.

If you have a Pinterest business account, you’ll be able to see analytics for all Pins saved from your claimed accounts.

Claim your account

To claim a YouTube account, Pinterest will ask for permission to access your channel ID and identify your videos but will not edit your video content. 

To claim an Instagram account, Pinterest will prompt you to log into your Instagram account. If you want Pins from your Instagram account to be attributed to you, you’ll need to set your account as public. You can only claim one Instagram account at a time. If you want to claim a different Instagram account, you will need to unclaim the existing account before you can add a new one.

Once your account has been successfully claimed, Pins that existed on your account before it was claimed should be attributed to you within a few days. All future Pins created from your claimed accounts will automatically be attributed to you.

Unclaim your account

When you unclaim an account, it will no longer show as linked in your settings and people on Pinterest will no longer be able to see that content attributed to you. 

To permanently remove your account information for YouTube accounts, follow the below steps to unclaim your account through Pinterest and then revoke Pinterest’s access through your Google settings.
