You should know how to delete a pin on Pinterest in case you save it to the wrong board or need to clean up irrelevant content. It's possible to delete a single Pinterest item or delete them in bulk.

Instructions in this article apply to Pinterest.com, but the process is the same in the Pinterest app for Android and iOS.

How to Delete Pins on Pinterest in Bulk

To do a thorough cleaning of your boards, you can delete multiple pins at once.

You can delete pins in bulk from a specific board page, but not from your Pins page. The Pinterest app doesn't have a bulk delete function.

  1. Go to the board containing multiple pins you want to delete and select Organize. This action will make all of your pins selectable.

  2. Select the pins you want to delete. When you do, a checkmark will appear in the bottom-right corner.

    If you accidentally select a pin you don't want to delete, click it again to deselect.

  3. Select Delete.

What Happens When You Delete Pins on Pinterest

You follow the same process whether you're deleting an item you saved from Pinterest or one you created. Deleting a pin you found in your main feed and saved to a board is no different from deleting a pin you created by uploading a photo, adding a link, and writing a description.

If you delete a post you created (by uploading a photo and filling in the details), it will remain on other users' boards who saved it. Even though you created the original pin, it will only disappear from your board.
