To find your account and profile settings, click your picture then click Settings. From here, you can change your:

  • Email address 
    See how. Hide how.

    1. Enter your new email in the Email Address box
    2. Click Save Settings
    3. Check your new email's inbox for the confirmation email we'll send you
  • Password 
    See how. Hide how.

    1. Click Change your password
    2. Enter your current password
    3. Pick your new password then type it again
    4. Click Change Password

    If you don't remember your password or if your account's in safe mode, you should reset your password.

  • Username 
    See how. Hide how.

    1. Click Edit Profile
    2. Pick your username then click Save Profile
    3. Check your email inbox for the confirmation email we'll send you

    Your username can only be 3-15 characters long and can't have spaces, symbols or punctuation. If the username you picked is already taken, try adding some numbers.

    Changing your username won't affect your Pins, boards, followers or any other account settings, but it will change the URL for your Pinterest profile. Instead of pinterest.com/youroldusername, you can find your account at pinterest.com/yournewusername

  • Profile picture 
    See how. Hide how.

    1. Click Edit Profile
    2. Click Change Picture
    3. Click Choose File to find the file on your computer—we'll automatically add it once you've picked the file

    Your Pinterest profile picture is 165x165 pixels. Uploading a photo with square dimensions work best—we recommend 600x600 pixels (we'll resize it to fit). We'll center, crop and resize rectangular images, so the picture you end up with may not be ideal.

  • Email notifications 
    See how. Hide how.
    1. Pick which notifications you want to get
    2. Decide how often you want to get your emails—when they happen or once a day
    3. If you'd like a weekly digest from Pinterest with your top Pinned stuff and suggested Pins and boards, switch the Weekly inspiration button from No to Yes
    4. To change your group board notifications, click See group board email settings
    5. Click Save Settings
  • Twitter, Facebook or Google+ connections 
    See how. Hide how.

    1. Switch Log in with Facebook, Log in with Twitter, or Connect with Google+ from No to Yes
    2. Click Save Settings

    When you unlink from Facebook or Twitter, we'll ask you to enter in your Pinterest password (not your Facebook one). This is to double check that you know how to log in with the right email and password. 

  • Search engine privacy 
    See how. Hide how.
     
    Use the search privacy setting to keep search engines like Google and Yahoo! from showing your Pinterest profile in their search results.
    1. Switch Search Privacy from No to Yes
    2. Click Save Settings

    When you turn on search privacy, we add a tag to your profile telling search engines to ignore it, but it may take several weeks for the search engine to see it. You can get in touch with Google to ask them to remove a page more quickly.

  • Language 
    See how. Hide how.
    1. Pick your language from the Language menu
    2. Click Save Settings
