At Last, Get Some Privacy On Pinterest With Secret Boards [Updates]

Ads by Google

Nothing used to be private on Pinterest. Every single pin had a global audience. If you were among the ones hankering for some secluded corner on Pinterest, here’s some cheer just before the holidays. Pinterest has brought in ‘Secret boards’.

Launched a couple of days back, Pinterest is now allowing every user to create up to three secret boards. The secret boards will allow you to add pins but keep them away from the prying eyes of the world. You can add anything there and it won’t show up anywhere else on Pinterest.

Do note that none of the existing boards can be converted to a secret board because someone could have already repined from them.

You have to start from scratch. Go to your Profile page on your Pinterest web account. Click on Create a Secret Board. Alternatively, you can also click Add+ on the top right-hand corner of Pinterest to select Create Board and turn the Secret button to On.

On the updated Pinterest mobile app for iPhone, iPad, Android phone or Android tablet, you can enable the Secret Boards by navigating to Profile – Boards – Create a Secret Board. Here’s the complete how-to on their support page.

Pinterest explains the idea behind secret boards,

We hope that secret boards will make Pinterest even more useful. You can use secret boards to keep track of holiday gifts, plan a special event, or work on a project you aren’t yet ready to share with the rest of the world. You can keep your secret boards to yourself or invite family and friends to pin with you.
