Pincodes

View instructions for:

Pincodes are special codes you can create to share your Pinterest profile in the real world. When someone sees your Pincode, they'll use Pinterest Lens to scan it. If you have a personal account, you can set up a Pincode to redirect people to your profile. If you have a business account, you can set up a Pincode to redirect people to your profile or any board.

Pincodes can be created on your desktop browser or in the Pinterest app. Save the Pincode and share it so people can find you and your ideas on Pinterest.

Share a Pincode

When displaying your Pincode, the circular part of the Pincode should be a minimum of 1.5 inches in diameter to be reliably scannable. If you're printing the Pincode on a physical object, you'll want to print the Pincode on a flat surface so the Pincode will be legible.

Make sure you own the rights to the image for your Pincode, as with any other Pin you create on Pinterest.
