Want to see less of a specific Pinterest profile? Learn how to block a Pinterest account on your desktop or mobile device.


What Happens When You Block Someone On Pinterest?


Like any other social media platform, Pinterest offers a block button to allow users to increase their digital safety. But what happens when you block other users on Pinterest?


Blocking a profile page will prevent that user from:


  • Following you

  • Messaging you

  • Interacting with your pins


They will not receive a notification that you've blocked them, however they will be notified with an error message if they try to follow you or interact with your content.


Blocked users will still appear in:


  • Search results

  • Feeds

  • Group boards

  • Previously saved pins on your profile


Keep reading for a comprehensive guide on how to block a person on Pinterest's desktop website or the mobile Pinterest app.
