Android permissions

The Pinterest app requires permissions. When the app is installed, we'll ask you for consent. The app has access to the following:

  • Identity: Lets us send you push notifications.
  • Contacts: When you send Pins, as you type a name, we'll suggest names or email addresses from your contacts.
  • Location: Lets us help you add a location to your Pin. 
  • Photos/Media/FilesLets you Pin your own photos and save Pins to your device. It also lets us store cached data.
  • Camera: Lets you take a picture and upload it as a Pin.
  • Home settings and shortcuts: Lets us show you the number of new notifications on your Pinterest app icon.
