Have you ever come across a Promoted Pin (ad) on Pinterest that you didn’t want to see? While you’re allowed to tell Pinterest that you’re “not into this Pin,” you can also go one step further and block the advertiser so that you’ll no longer see its ads in the future.
It’s worth noting that Pinterest allows each user to block up to 1,000 advertisers. After this, the platform will begin showing Promoted Pins from advertisers that have previously been blocked.
Our guide will show you how to block an advertiser on Pinterest.
Note: These screenshots were captured in the Pinterest application on iOS.
Step 1: When you come across a Promoted Pin from an advertiser you wish to block, tap the advertiser’s username (as seen below). This takes you to the advertiser’s profile. Note: You can also visit the advertiser’s profile by tapping inside the Search window at the top of your feed, tapping the “People” button under the Search bar and searching for the advertiser.
Step 2: Tap the flag near the top-left corner of the screen.
Step 3: Tap “Block.”
To unblock an advertiser, follow the steps above to visit the advertiser’s profile and tap “Unblock” in the top-right corner of the screen.
