Pinterest: Here’s How to Make a Board Private

Stop others from seeing your Pins

Did you know Pinterest allows you to make your boards private, so that only you can see the Pins they contain? Our guide will show you how to make a board private within the Pinterest application.

Note: These screenshots were captured in the Pinterest app on iOS.

Step 1: Tap “Saved” in the bottom-right corner of the screen to go to your profile.

Step 2: Tap and hold on the board you want to make private until three icons appear.

Step 3: Slide your finger to the Edit icon (the farthest left icon). It will turn red, and the word “Edit” will appear on the screen. Lift your finger.

Step 4: Tap the toggle next to “Keep board secret” to make the board private. Note: You can follow these same steps if you ever want to make the board public again in the future.
