Pincodes are special codes that 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. You can set up a Pincode to send people to your profile or any of your boards.

Pincodes that link to your profile or boards can be created on your desktop or in the Pinterest app. Once you’ve created your Pincode, save and share it so people can find you and your ideas on Pinterest.

    Share a Pincode

    You can share your Pincode wherever you like. When displaying your Pincode, the circular part should be a minimum of 1.5 inches in diameter to be scannable. If you're printing the Pincode on a physical object, 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.
