Pinterest is a gold mine for creative ideas, DIY tutorials, and style inspiration ideas.

Over 400 million users actively use Pinterest each month for sharing pins and creating boards that are a significant source of inspiration for others. Users can use the app's options to save their favorite pins and revisit them whenever needed.

However, if you haven't saved the pin you have seen on Pinterest, you can find it in your Pinterest history.

Pinterest stores all the pins you have clicked on in a separate part of the app, and in this blog post, we will show you how to find them via desktop and mobile.

How to see Pinterest History

Pinterest history can be viewed from both mobile and desktop.

  • View Pinterest history from desktop
  1. Log in to your Pinterest account and click on the drop-down arrow.

  2. Tap on the three-dot menu in the upper right corner.

How to delete recently viewed pins on Pinterest

Pinterest doesn’t have an option that will allow you to delete your history. All pins you have viewed will be stored in the history section of your Pinterest account.

Even if you decide to turn off all the pins you have viewed, they will still be visible in the history section and available for restoring once you hit the turn-on button.

You can, however, delete your Pinterest search history. To delete your Pinterest search history, head to the search bar and click on the ‘x’ sign next to the recent searches option. Your searches will be deleted.
