When you block someone on Pinterest What can they see?

Answered by Michael Wilson

When you block someone on Pinterest, they will have limited visibility of your profile and activities. Here’s a detailed breakdown of what a blocked user can see:

1. Profile: The blocked person can still see your profile information, including your username, profile picture, and bio. However, they won’t be able to see any updates or changes you make to your profile.

2. Pins: Any pins that you have saved from the blocked person will remain in your boards. However, the blocked user will not be able to see any new pins you save, and they won’t be able to view your boards or pins directly.

3. Boards: The blocked person will still see the titles and descriptions of your boards, but they won’t be able to access the boards or view the pins within them.

4. Searches: If the blocked person searches for a specific topic or keyword, your profile and pins may still appear in their search results. However, they won’t be able to see any new pins you save or access your profile from the search results.

5. Feeds: The blocked user may still encounter your pins in their home feed or category feeds, similar to how pins from other users appear. However, they won’t be able to view your profile or interact with your pins in any way.

6. Notifications: When you block someone, they won’t receive any notifications about your activities. This includes notifications about new pins, boards, or comments you make on other pins.

7. Following: The blocked person will no longer be able to follow you or see any updates from your account in their following feed. They will also not receive any recommendations or suggestions related to your profile.

8. Messaging: Blocking someone on Pinterest also prevents them from sending you direct messages. They won’t be able to initiate conversations or reply to any existing messages.

It’s important to note that while blocking restricts the person’s access to your profile and activities, it doesn’t completely remove all traces of your presence. They can still see your username and profile picture when encountering your pins or boards in search results or feeds.

Remember, blocking someone on Pinterest is a personal choice, and it can help maintain your privacy and control over your online experience.
