  3. Changing your username won't affect your Pins, boards, followers or any other account settings. It will change the address/URL for your Pinterest profile: instead of http://pinterest.com/youroldusername, your account will be found at: http://pinterest.com/yournewusername

Note

  • Your Pinterest profile picture is 165x165 pixels
  • Photos with square dimensions work best – we recommend 600x600 pixels
  • Square images larger than 165x165 pixels will be automatically resized to fit
  • Square images that are smaller than 165x165 pixels will be stretched to fit
  • Rectangular images are centered, resized and cropped automatically, so your resulting picture might not be ideal

 


Link to Facebook, Twitter, or Google+

  1. Click your name then click Settings
  2. Switch Login with Facebook, Login with Twitter, or Connect with Google+ to Yes
  3. Click Save Settings

Note: When you unlink from Facebook or Twitter, we'll ask you to enter in your Pinterest password (not your Facebook one). This step is in place to confirm that you know how to log in with the email/password associated with your Pinterest account.
