Rate limit blocks

Blocks usually happen when you do one thing too quickly or too frequently.

You might hit a block if you:

  • Log in a lot
  • Comment on Pins very quickly
  • Post the same comment many times
  • Follow a lot of people in a short period of time
  • Add or save a lot of Pins from the same website quickly
  • Use a link shortener or redirect like bit.ly

Prevent future blocks

  • Wait 30 minutes to 24 hours before trying any of the above actions again
  • Save Pins from their original source
  • Use the full link rather than a link-shortener or redirect when including a link in a comment or description

Most limits are removed automatically within 24 hours.
