This holiday season, Pinterest
is giving us a special gift that’s rarely found on the Internet: more privacy.
They chose the holidays as the perfect time to test one of their most frequently-requested features: secret boards! Now you can create three secret boards. You can use them to keep track of holiday gifts or ideas, to plan a private event or to work on a project you don’t want to share with the world.
You can keep these boards all to yourself or you can share your secret boards with family and friends by inviting them to pin on them with you. If you choose to share your secret board with friends or family, know that another participant may invite someone else to the board. They can also make the board available to an app they use to view Pinterest, or even just take an image from the board and email it to their friends. So, if you want your board to stay secret, make sure you make that clear to anyone you share it with.
To create a secret board from the web, visit your profile and scroll down to the bottom. Then, click Create a Secret Board. You can also click Add+ on the top right-hand corner of Pinterest to select Create Board and turn the Secret button to On.
Thank you, Pinterest, for the gift of privacy.
