How to hide your Pinterest profile from search engines

It is also important to mention that your profile won’t be hidden right away, as the search engines need some time for that. Let’s see how to enable this option:

  • Open your browser and go to Pinterest
  • Sign in
  • Click on the arrow icon in the top-right corner of the screen
  • Now click Settings
  • Next, click on Privacy and data
  • You will see the option “Hide your profile from search engines (Ex. Google) under Search privacy
  • Once you click on the option, you will see a pop-up message

  • Click I understand
  • As the final step, click Done in the top-right

That’s it. You have successfully enabled the option. As you can see, search engines will need some time to remove your profile and boards from search results. But, if you want it removed, enable the option and after a while, your profile won’t be visible.
