What happens when you're blocked


Why am I blocked?

If you're seeing an error that you've been blocked by someone, it's most likely that your interaction with them was outside of their comfort-zone. 

We want to make sure everyone's comfortable when using Pinterest. Blocking's a simple way to allow Pinners to control the kinds of discussions or interactions they have on Pinterest.

Blocking doesn't necessarily mean you've violated our Terms of Service or our Acceptable Use Policy.


What happens when you're blocked

Blocks are mutual. This means:

  1. The person who blocked you can't follow you or interact with your Pins.
  2. You can't follow or interact with their Pins.
  3. Neither of you can like, Pin or comment on each other's Pins
  4. Any previous follows between you and the person are automatically removed.
  5. Any previous comments between you and the person are automatically removed.
  6. Any previous likes and/or Pins between you and the person aren't automatically removed. You can unlike Pins to remove them individually.
  7. All other interactions are blocked. 

NoteYou might see this person's boards and Pins in public areas such as search results, category feeds or group boards (if you both collaborate on the same board).
