Frequently Asked Questions


1. If I make a board private, will I receive notifications when someone saves a pin from that board?

No, because it is a private board and therefore, is not visible to the general public to begin with. If it is private, no one will be able to save content from that board.

2. Is there a limit to the number of private boards I can have in my Pinterest account?

Not at all.

3. Can I add media from my device into my private board?

Yes, absolutely. Private boards works just like any other board, which means that uploading content from your device into a private board works in the same way as it does for a public board.

Not really, no. To share it, you will have to make that board public, or add collaborators to share it with someone else.
