Enable two factor authentication

Turn on two-factor authentication to use your phone and your password for extra security. 

Use a strong password
  • Use numbers and symbols to make your password stronger
  • Use a unique password for your Pinterest account
  • Keep your password secret—we'll never ask for your password by email, instant message or phone
  • Learn how to change your password.

    Watch where you log in
  • Only enter your password on or on the official Pinterest, Inc. app—remember, our app is always free
  • Check the address bar in your browser to make sure it ends in and not
  • If you're not sure whether you should log in, go to to be safe
  • Never answer suspicious requests for personal information and be cautious about any deals that seem too good to be true
  • Protect your devices
  • Make sure your computer and browser are up-to-date with the most recent updates and anti-virus software. Check to see if your browser is up to date.
  • Only install browser add-ins and plug-ins from publishers you trust.
  • Don't open attachments or install software from an email that claims to be Pinterest.
