It doesn’t matter the type of visual search engine or social media you are using. You will always find a person who will either harass or spam you. It’s no difference with Pinterest. You can get spammed by many folks who will always send you their low-quality links and pins to their clickbait content.

The good news is, you can easily block them. But before we look at how to block someone on Pinterest, here what happens.

  • The other person you intend to block is not notified, but they will get a block notification if they try to interact with or follow your pins.

  • The block is mutual: any person you block on Pinterest won’t be able to interact with or follow your pins, and you won’t interact with or follow their pins.
  • All the previous comments between you and the other person will be removed automatically.
