How to Recover Deleted Pinterest Board (Restore a Board on Pinterest)

Restore Pinterest Boards: Back in those days, most of us relied on Google to download HD images to set as wallpaper or display pictures. However, currently, we have plenty of platforms to download all types of images we want. One platform that plays well with visuals and has a great collection of images is Pinterest. In business terms, Pinterest helps brands attract traffic and sales as every pin might direct the audience to a website or shop page.

It is worth mentioning that Pinterest is growing day by day and building a massive audience. If you’re a content creator or avid Pinterest user, you might have found the Pinterest boards feature beneficial. Pinners use boards to categorize and save their favorite pins so that they can access them easily. Content creators do the same to make it easy for their followers. 

Additionally, if the boards are irrelevant and add no more value, the creator of the board can delete them. In most social media networks, we can create and later on delete content if we no more wish to have it.

Pinterest boards are not an exception; they can also be deleted. But the real question is can we recover the boards we deleted? This is what we are precisely going to discuss in today’s blog.

We will first explore if it is possible to recover the deleted Pinterest board? If yes, what are the ways to do so, and if not, we will dig up why and what is the next best alternative available? So, without any further ado, let us get to it.

Can You Recover Deleted Pinterest Board?

Unfortunately, you can’t recover deleted Pinterest board. If you have manually deleted a Pinterest board, you might have glimpsed the statement, “Once you delete a board and all its Pins, you can’t undo it!” You would have seen this notice not once but twice before you deleted a Pinterest board.

That statement undoubtedly indicates that you will not be able to recover the deleted Pinterest board.

Additionally, in case you haven’t scanned the Pinterest support center, this is the statement that you’ll find mentioned there “…deleted pins or board cannot be recovered.”

However, if you did not delete the Pinterest board manually, and it disappeared automatically from your account, there are some steps you can take from your end to recover those missing boards.

As the Pinterest boards are missing, you might think that you’re the one who deleted them accidentally. But most Pinterest users report saying that their boards are disappearing from their saved section.

Hence, if a board is missing, some methods could probably help you. In the proceeding sections, we will discuss in detail the ways to recover the missing or lost boards on Pinterest.

Pinterest Board Disappeared? Here’s How to Recover

1. Use Backup

Many Pinterest users share the links of the backups over emails and social media. These links can be your backup for retrieving the missing boards. In order to bring the deleted pins back, check your emails or social media to find the link to the boards.

As you open those links, you will get a message that reads “the board you’re trying to access is deleted”. Just below this message, you will find a restore button. From here, you can restore the Pinterest board.

2. Use Different Pinterest Accounts

If you don’t remember deleting the Pinterest boards, then there is a good chance you have logged into a different Pinterest account. If that’s the reason why your Pinterest board is missing or it looks different, worries not! You can use your email to log into different Pinterest accounts until you find the right one.

3. Get Your Group Board Back

If you had joined a group board and now you can’t find the board anymore on your dashboard, then the group admin must have removed you or you must have removed yourself. You can request the admin to add you again so that you can find the group board.

Here’s how you can:

  • Find the board that you’d like to join.
  • Tap on the “Request to join” button.
  • Once your request gets approved, you’ll receive a push notification.
  • Now you can access the group board.

Final Words:

If none of these methods work, then try searching for a cached copy. Your last resort is the data recovery software. They may or may not work, but there’s nothing wrong with giving these software applications a try.
