Limits for Pins, boards, and following

To keep Pinterest running quickly, there's a limit to the total number of Pins, boards and follows we can store for personal accounts. You can have up to:

  • 500 boards (This includes secret boards and group boards you didn't create.)
  • 200,000 Pins (This includes secret Pins and your Pins on group boards you didn't create. This doesn't include other people's Pins on group boards you created.)
  • 50,000 follows

If you got an error that you hit a limit, try deleting some Pins or boards, or unfollowing people. You can also create a new account with another email address.

Tips and Troubleshooting

If you hit a limit the best thing to do is to create a new Pinterest account with another email address. These limits keep Pinterest running quickly, so we can't make exceptions.
