How to delete your Pins on Pinterest using Pinterest mobile app


How to delete pins on Pinterest

Pinterest is one of the few social media platforms that deal mainly with visuals. On the platform, users can upload the picture they captured and share it with their followers. It works much like Instagram, although they are entirely different.

Each picture or photo uploaded is called “Pin”, and users can add description to each Pin as they deemed fit. Moreover, Pinterest allow its users to upload each Pin via URL (web address). Today, I’ll be showing you how you can delete the Pins you posted (or uploaded) on Pinterest via its mobile app.
