A rate limit block is a temporary block that may automatically be put on your account if we notice that you've repeatedly done the same action too many times in a short period of time. This is to prevent spam on Pinterest and to keep Pins working properly.

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
  • To prevent future blocks:
  • Try not to repeatedly do the same thing
  • Vary your actions by doing different things
  • If you’re currently blocked, wait a few minutes before trying again. If you’re still experiencing trouble, most limits are removed automatically within 24 hours.
