Login to Pinterest is a popular question that is is very important, because most of the options that Pinterest offers are unavailable until a user will enter logon. This article will explain some methods of Pinterest login.
Pinterest is a social network and a mobile application that was founded in 2010 by Ben Silbermann, Paul Sciarra and Evan Sharp. As of 2019, Pinterest has 291 million active users. The main purpose of a website is saving pictures from the Internet (so called "pins") to a board that is created by user. One user can have unlimited amount of boards with infinite pins on it.
What is interesting about this service is that the original source of the image is always shown under the image in form of an active link. The system also picks images of matching theme and place them under the initial picture as well. User can download images to their device, but mostly images are saved as pins at boards.
You can use Pinterest to browse through images and save them, but in order to create board to pin pictures on it, registration or logging in is required. Let's find out how it's done.
Pinterest Account Login
To log in Pinterest, you will have to go to "pinterest.com" or to search "pinterest login" in a search bar. When the website is launched, type phone number/email that you've registered with and a password. After you've completed this simple procedure, you can use Pinterest to it's fullest.
