How To See Blocked Accounts On Pinterest

As a technology enthusiast and avid Pinterest user, I understand the frustration of wanting to access information from a blocked account. Whether it’s due to privacy settings or personal choices, sometimes we find ourselves wanting to see the content of a Pinterest account that we’re unable to access. In this article, I will guide you through the process of how to see blocked accounts on Pinterest, providing step-by-step instructions to help you navigate through this hurdle.

Understanding Blocked Accounts on Pinterest

Before we dive into the methods to see blocked accounts on Pinterest, let’s first clarify what it means for an account to be blocked. When someone blocks you on Pinterest, they essentially restrict your access to their profile, boards, and pins. This can be due to various reasons such as privacy concerns, personal conflicts, or simply a personal choice to limit their content’s visibility.

It’s important to respect other users’ boundaries and understand that their decision to block you is their right. However, if you find yourself genuinely needing access to their content or simply curious about what they’re sharing, there are a few methods you can try.

Method 1: Request Access

The first step you can take to try and see a blocked account on Pinterest is by sending a request to the user. Pinterest allows users to grant access to their blocked accounts if they choose to do so. To request access:

  1. Visit the Pinterest website or open the Pinterest app on your device.
  2. Search for the blocked account by entering their username or name in the search bar.
  3. Once you’ve found the account, click on their profile to open it.
  4. Look for the option to “Request Access” and click on it.
  5. Enter a polite and concise message explaining why you would like access to their account.
  6. Submit the request and wait for the user’s response.

It’s important to remember that the decision to grant access lies solely with the user. They may or may not choose to give you access to their blocked account, and it’s essential to respect their decision.

Method 2: Use a Different Account

If the first method doesn’t work or if you don’t feel comfortable reaching out to the user directly, you can try accessing the blocked account using a different Pinterest account. Here’s how:

  1. Create a new Pinterest account using a different email address.
  2. Verify your new account by following the instructions sent to your email.
  3. Once your new account is set up, search for the blocked account using the methods mentioned earlier.
  4. When you find the blocked account, click on it to see if you can access their content using your new account.

Please note that this method may not always work, especially if the user has taken measures to block multiple accounts or has restricted access based on IP addresses. Additionally, creating multiple accounts solely to gain access to a blocked account may be against Pinterest’s terms of service, so use this method responsibly and within the platform’s guidelines.

Method 3: Use Pinterest Search Engine

If the account you want to see has public boards or pins, you can sometimes catch a glimpse of their content through the Pinterest search engine. Here’s how you can try:

  1. Visit the Pinterest website or open the Pinterest app on your device.
  2. Type specific keywords related to the content you’re trying to find, into the search bar.
  3. Explore the search results and look for pins or boards that might belong to the blocked account.
  4. Click on the search results to view the content.

Keep in mind that this method may not provide you with a comprehensive view of the blocked account’s content. It relies on the user’s public boards and pins, which may not capture the full extent of their account activity.


While it may be frustrating at times, it’s important to respect other users’ decisions to block their accounts on Pinterest. However, if you feel a sincere need or curiosity to see their content, you can try requesting access or using a different account to gain access. Remember to use these methods responsibly and within the platform’s guidelines. Happy Pinning!
