Scan Pincodes with Pinterest Lens

Not only does Pinterest Lens let you discover ideas inspired by anything you snap a picture of, you can also use Lens to scan Pincodes.

Pincodes are special Pinterest-only codes that live out in the real world (in magazines, on product packaging, in stores), and link directly to hand-curated ideas on Pinterest. When you come across a Pincode, all you have to do is:

  1. Open the Pinterest app on your iPhone or Android phone.
  2. Tap the camera up next to the search bar.
  3. Point your phone at the Pincode to instantly access Pins and boards on Pinterest—no need to take a picture.

You can even use Pinterest Lens to scan plain old QR codes!
