Frequently Asked Questions:

1. Why can’t I search profiles on Pinterest?

If you’re unable to search and find people on Pinterest, there is a good chance that you’re entering the username wrong. If you enter the wrong username, you’ll be able to see the profile with the wrong username. Make sure that you’re entering the correct username of the user’s profile, or else it won’t be able to show you the profile of the user whom you’re looking for in the results. 

It’s also possible that the profile is not available by the username anymore or the user has deleted his or her Pinterest profile. If you’re not sure about the username, then ask the user on other platforms about his Pinterest username and then find the account on Pinterest. 

2. Can I find someone on Pinterest by email?

No, you cannot find someone by their email address on Pinterest as Pinterest only allows you to search users using their username.  However, you can try to search for the user using the username from his Gmail ID.

As people often use the same username on different platforms, there’s a good chance that the person uses his Gmail username on Pinterest too. If that’s the case, then you’ll be able to find the person on Pinterest taking the username from his Gmail ID. 

Let’s look at an example:

If the Gmail ID of the person is [email protected]  then, you need to take the official_google part from the ID as the username and then search for the user on Pinterest to see if you can find his profile or not.
