Deactivate Your Pinterest Account on iPhone 6
Edited by Freya, Robert, Jen M
Hi, welcome to VisiHow. Today I'm going to teach you how to deactivate an account using the Pinterest application on the iPhone 6.
To begin, press the lock button on the right-hand side of the phone.
Alternatively, we can unlock our phone by pressing the round button at the bottom of the screen.
Swipe to the right to enter your passcode.
As an alternative to entering your passcode, put your finger on the home button to use the fingerprint scanner.
Find and tap on the Pinterest application, which has a red and white icon with a white "P" inside of a red circle.
This takes us to our dashboard. It might also ask us to sign in, which we need to be. If we're not signed in, we can refer to the article on how to sign in using Pinterest on the iPhone 6.
Scroll to the bottom, and tap on the head and shoulders icon on the right side.
This will take us to our profile.
Tap on the gear icon in the top-right corner to go to settings.
Tap on the second option, "Account Settings".
Scroll all the way to the bottom and tap on "Deactivate Account".
This will give us the option to deactivate our account, or permanently close our account. To deactivate means to just stop the account being open and published, but to permanently close the account means to erase all information.
Tap on "Deactivate my account".
Tap on "Deactivate now" to confirm and deactivate the account.
Tap on "Cancel" to dismiss and not deactivate the account.
In this example, we are tapping on cancel.
Tap on the arrow in the top-left corner three times to go back.
Tap on the Pinterest icon in the bottom-left corner to go back to the dashboard, if we haven't deactivated our account.
If we have deactivated our account, it will probably just take us to our home screen and give us the option to sign up or sign in.
Now you know how to deactivate your account using the Pinterest application on the iPhone 6.
