Pinterest: Here’s How to Claim Your Accounts on Other Social Platforms

Pins from those profiles will be attributed to you

Did you know that Pinterest allows you to claim your Instagram, Etsy and/or YouTube accounts on its platform? When you claim your other accounts on Pinterest, any Pins from those accounts (saved by other users) will be attributed back to you on Pinterest. In addition, you’ll be able to see stats about those Pins, among other features.

Our guide will show you how to claim your Instagram, Etsy and/or YouTube accounts in the Pinterest mobile application.

Note: These screenshots were captured in the Pinterest app on iOS.

Step 1: Tap “Saved” in the bottom-right corner of the screen.

Step 2: Tap the settings icon in the top-right corner of the screen.

Step 3: Tap “Edit settings.”

Step 4: Scroll down to the “Claim accounts” section, and tap the gray toggle to the right of Instagram, Etsy or YouTube to begin claiming your account on that platform.

From there, Pinterest will load its own web browser, which will allow you to sign in to the selected platform and connect your account. As an example, you can see what this process looks like on Instagram below.
