There will come a time when you’ve deleted one of your blog posts and will want to delete any pins that are still on Pinterest. This post is a quick guide on how to delete Pinterest pins, for beginners who aren’t that familiar with the platform, and shows how to delete pins individually and in bulk.

Deleting Pins One at a Time

Log In & Select a Board

Firstly, log in and head over to ‘Saved’ to access your boards.

Click on the board you want and search through your pins to find the pin that you wish to delete.

Click on the Pin

Click on the pin so that it opens up showing the details.

Click the three dots and you will see some options, choose ‘edit pin’.

Editing a pin

A pop-up box will appear and you can now click ‘Delete’. It will ask you if you are sure and you will need to confirm this by clicking delete, you also have the option to cancel here should you change your mind.

Deleting a pin
Are you sure you want to delete pin.

Remember, once you delete a pin, it’s permanent. You won’t be able to get that pin back unless you re-pin it from the original source or another pinner.

Also, if you’re trying to delete a pin that you’ve added to a group board, only the creator of the pin or the owner of the group board can delete it.

How to Delete Multiple Pins

If you have lots of pins to delete, this is a quicker way of doing it:

Go to the board you want by following the instructions above and then click on ‘Organise’.

Organise pins.

A Select and Reorder page will open up. Simply click on the pins to select however many you want to delete or choose ‘Select All’ if you wish to delete all pins on the board.

Select and reorder pin page
Deleting pins in bulk.

As you can see in the image above, once you start selecting pins, a trash can icon appears at the bottom for your to click when you’re ready to delete the pins. As above a pop-up will ask you to confirm if you wish to delete the selected pins.

That’s it, job done! Just repeat either of these processes for any other pins you want to delete.
