Pinterest is a social media and image-sharing service on the Internet, with nearly 450 million monthly active users worldwide. It’s largely known for its aesthetic design and content, and variety. If you’ve been using websites like Unsplash and Pexels for stock pictures, you can easily replace them with Pinterest. Teenagers are particularly attracted to Pinterest’s sleek design and aesthetic ideas. In fact, they often use images downloaded from Pinterest as their profile pictures on platforms where they don’t wish to disclose their identity.
Pinterest grew from an earlier app called Tote, which was meant to serve as a replacement for paper catalogs. However, it didn’t take off to its fullest potential because of many issues with its online payment methods.
Regardless, the creators went to great lengths to ensure the success of this platform because they knew this idea was as unique as they came. And today, after thirteen years, it’s a one-stop destination for all your aesthetic needs, from DIY room decor to quick and easy dessert recipes and everything in between.
In today’s blog, we’ll be talking about if and how you can find someone on Pinterest using only their phone number. To learn all about it and other related topics, stick with us until the end!
How to Find Someone on Pinterest by Phone Number
If you’re a new user on Pinterest, you might be feeling a little bit lost on this large platform. It’s entirely understandable that you’d want to add your friends to your list through their phone numbers.
It might look like phone numbers are a convenient way of adding someone to your network; that’s how Instagram, Facebook, and Snapchat do it, right? They sync your contacts and show you your friends who use those platforms so that you can add them quickly.
Thankfully, Pinterest also understands how useful it is to add your friends to your profile without looking them up individually.
However, remember to add them to your contact list first. There’s no way to search for someone through their phone number on Pinterest; you’ll have to find them by syncing your contacts.
Here’s how to sync your contacts on Pinterest
Step 1: Launch Pinterest on your smartphone and log in to your account.
Step 2: Your Home feed is the first page you’ll land on. At the bottom right corner of that page, you’ll see a small icon of your profile picture. Tap on it.
Step 3: This will bring you to your profile. At the top right corner of your profile, tap on the three dots icon. A pop-up menu will appear with several actionable options.
Step 4: Tap on the first one called Settings. On the Settings page, you’ll see several options under the subheading Account information.
Step 5: Tap on the second to the last option under Account information called Privacy and data.
Step 6: You’ll see an option called Sync your contacts with a toggle button right next to it. By default, it is turned off. Turn it on, and you’ll be good to go.
