How To Delete Pins On Pinterest

If you’re active on Pinterest and constantly trying to stay on top of trends, you likely have a lot of pins you no longer need collecting dust. Maybe they’re outdated, or perhaps you just don’t find them interesting anymore. Either way, it’s time to clean up your boards and eliminate those unwanted pins! 

Achieving Vs. Deleting Pins 

When you archive a pin, you remove it from your boards and keep it in your account. This is useful if you want to save the pin for later or if you want to edit it and repin it later. You can find all of your archived pins by going to your profile and selecting “Archived Pins” from the menu. You can also hide a pin if you don’t want to delete it but don’t want it to appear on your board. To do this, hover over the pin and click the “Hide” button. The pin will still be visible on your profile, but it won’t be displayed on your board. 

Deleting a pin permanently removes it from your account. Once you delete a pin, you can’t get it back. This is helpful if you want to get rid of pins that are no longer relevant to you or if they’re taking up too much space in your account.
