Report impersonation

We don't allow accounts that mislead or deceive others. We may update, transfer, or permanently suspend accounts that do so.

If someone is pretending to be you, let us know.

Please provide us:

  • The URL of the Pinterest profile you want us to review
  • Your authentic Pinterest profile, if you have one
  • Any other info we can use to verify your identity, like a Facebook or Twitter profile

When we look into reports of impersonation, we check to see whether a profile is actually pretending to be someone else. We'll consider the profile information, Pin descriptions, comments, and board titles.

Sometimes a user might share the same name as you or have a similar username, but they might not be impersonating you. If that's the case, that account might not be violating our Acceptable Use Policy.

You can also report profiles impersonating well-known public figures using this same process.

If you represent a company, brand, or organization and you want to claim a username or report content for trademark reasons, check out our Trademark page.
