For the smoothest mobile experience, we recommend using the Pinterest app from the App Store or Google Play. If you're using a version of the iOS app prior to 7.4.1 or a version of the Android app prior to 7.4.1, you'll need to upgrade to the most recent version or use mobile web to keep using Pinterest.

When to uninstall the Pinterest app

If you're using an Android device on an OS prior to 4.4 or an iOS device on an OS prior to 9.0, you won't be able to upgrade the app. In this case, or if you’d rather use Pinterest through your mobile web browser, uninstall the app. Some links on Pinterest will default to the app, but uninstalling the app from your device will allow you to view those links in your mobile browser instead.

To update your Pinterest app:

Android phones 

  1. Open the Google Play app with your Android phone.
  2. Search for the Pinterest app
  3. Tap Update

iPhone or iPad
