How do I Make my Pinterest Account Public Again?

To make your Pinterest account public again, please update your search privacy setting. Here are the steps on how to do it:

On the Pinterest website

  1. Go to your profile page.
  2. Click on the Settings gear icon.
  3. Click on Privacy and data.
  4. Toggle the switch next to Search privacy to On.

On the Pinterest app

  2. Tap on your profile picture at the bottom-right corner of the screen.
  3. Tap the ellipsis icon at the top-right corner.
  4. Tap Settings.

Once you have updated your search privacy setting, your account will be public again. It may take a few hours for your profile and boards to appear in search results.

Here are some additional things to keep in mind:

  • If you have any secret boards, they will still be hidden from public view even if you make your account public.
  • If you have blocked any users, they will still be blocked even if you make your account public.
  • If you have deleted any of your Pins, they will not be restored if you make your account public.

I hope this answer helps you unPrivate your Pinterest account.
