How to block people on Pinterest

I'm a pretty laid back person, but when I have declined 20 board invites from
the same "individual", and I keep getting the invites, well it's time to block that person.
I don't like to be mean or ugly but once I've declined something, 
don't send me 5 more invites for the same thing.

So here is how to block people on Pinterest.
I decided to use Target as an example only.

Once you are on the persons Pinterest page, hover your mouse over the 
little flag in their description box...

A list will pop up and give you several options.
If you feel that you need to report someone or something then
 pick the appropriate issue. Or just go to the bottom of the list and select "Block".

*If you block someone, you won't be able to follow or interact with their pins.*

You will get a pop up asking if you are sure you want to block the person....

If you really want to block them, select Block and that is all there is to it.
Simple. Easy peasy!


  1. Hi, Angie

    How funny, this is a great tip. Thanks for sharing, now I know what to do when I get those annoying invites. LOL Have a great night.


  2. I have used this feature a few times especially for those that post porn. I report them and block them.

  3. I haven't had any problems on Pinterest but this is really handy to know. I didn't realize you could block someone. Thanks for sharing!

    I am visiting you from The Fun Friday Blog Hop!


  4. Hi Angie,
    Good tips. It's always good to know what to do if it ever comes up, though.
    Thank you for linking up with us on the Thumping Thursdays Blog Hop and also for having our badge on your blog.


  5. It's a great tip . Though I don't use Pinterest regularly but it's truly annoying to have invites like that.
