How to go on Pinterest without a Pinterest Account

What if you want to go on Pinterest without a Pinterest account? Is it possible to have access to all these amazing pins without creating your own account? In this blog you’ll learn all about it.

What is Pinterest to begin with?

Pinterest is a social media platform where users share pins (images) of all types of different content ranging from fashion, food, health, DIY projects, and more.

Since its creation in 2010, Pinterest has gained immense popularity with over 250 million active users as of 2019. What’s great about Pinterest is that it can be used for personal or professional purposes– there really isn’t any limit to what you can post or what you’re able to find there!

That’s why it’s my favorite social media platform, and that’s why I even help businesses to improve their visibility on this amazing platform as well!

But what if you just want to browse Pinterest without signing up?

How to browse Pinterest without signing up

If you’re thinking of giving Pinterest a try but don’t want to create an account just yet, you’re in luck. There are ways to go on Pinterest without signing up and even save pins without creating an account. Here’s how:

First, go ahead and open your browser of choice. I would suggest opening up either Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox but you can also use Safari if that’s what you prefer.

In the address bar at the top, type in pinterest.com/explore/. You’ll be taken directly to Explore which is where all the pins are located! This means that there are no boards for you to look through, but it will show content from other users. Unfortunately, you won’t have a personalized feed like when using an account. Your searches are limited this way, but if you really don’t want make your own account (just yet), the browsing option is fine for now as well.

After clicking onto Explore, browse around as much as you want without having to sign up for an account!

By the way, in case you don’t know what Pinterest boards are; read my tutorial about Pinterest boards here!

What if I want to save Pinterest pins without an account?

You can’t save pins for later without a Pinterest account. With a right-click of the mouse, you can download the image of the pin to your computer. This is just a great solution if you just want to save the image, but you can’t save the information and url behind the pin this way.

What are some other ways that I can go on Pinterest without an account?

There really aren’t any alternatives when it comes down to using Pinterest and having access to all of its features! If you want all of the content available through this platform then creating an account is completely necessary. You’ll be able to personalize your feed with pins saved by yourself (not just random images shared by others), follow boards curated around specific topics or hobbies like fashion or cooking, check out trends in different areas of interest and more!  

Pinterest is great for finding inspiration for all sorts of things- from recipes to fashion to home decor. And now that you know how easy it is to go on Pinterest without an account, there’s no reason not to give it a try!

Just some final thoughts before we finish up

Pinterest is a great platform whether or not you have an account. You can explore tons of different content without registering for an account, but if you want to be able to use all its amazing features, such as creating your own personalized boards and saving pins to them, signing up is the only way to go!
