I investigated a bit and found some ways how to search people’s boards on Pinterest, and in this article, we’ll go through the steps. Keep reading to learn how to do it.

How do I find someone’s board on the Pinterest app?

If you want to find a board that belongs to a specific user, then you will need to search for the user and find the boards they have saved or created.


Why can’t I search on Pinterest anymore?

You might not be able to search and use the Pinterest browse button because there are corrupted cache and cookies that need to be removed, causing issues. Also, if you are browsing in a private or Incognito window, the browser button won’t work, so you need to log into Pinterest in a regular browsing window.

If that didn’t work out for you, turn off other extensions, enable Javascript in your browser, and ensure that the browser you are using is updated.


Why can’t I see my Pinterest boards?

If you cannot see a Pinterest board on your account, it can be because you have accidentally deleted it. Or, the board may have been removed by Pinterest. Other than that, it may be a temporary glitch.
