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:

  1. 500 boards (This includes secret boards and group boards you didn't create.)
  2. 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.)
  3. 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.
