Yesterday morning, I got an email from Pinterest saying that I logged into their site from a location which they can’t recognize, that alerted me, because since Signup, I hardly logged into it. I created account only for the techdows brand sake. That email itself offered a link to lock account and prevent unauthorized usage, which I done by creating a new password.
Things to do When your Pinterest Account gets hacked
Reset Pinterest password:
Edit your Profile information if changed
It hasn’t taken much time for me to change my profile information. You can do this by clicking on your name, Your Profile & Pins and Pencil to open ‘Edit profile page’, after making the changes click on ‘Save Profile’ button.
Restoring deleted pins or boards
If he has created any pins or boards, delete them, unfortunately if any pins were deleted by him after gaining access to your account, neither you nor Pinterest can’t do anything about them then, because they’re already gone.
Note: You can send anonymous request to Pinterest team by selecting Issue as ‘Hacked Account’ from ‘My Account’ from this page.
