How To Restore A Board On Pinterest:

Pinterest boards are specifically a collection of pins, that you like or would want to draw shortly.

Here are some ways to restore deleted boards on Pinterest:

1. Recovering from Backup

“Backup” is the instant and easy solution for any restoration, whether be it for mobile data or any media collection.

Similarly, the Pinterest backup will help you restore the deleted boards. In Pinterest, whenever any user creates a collection of board and saves it to their account or deletes any board from the account, an informative type of mail is sent to their linked e-mail. Such sent e-mail is considered your Pinterest backup link inside.

🔴 Steps To Follow:

Step 1: Go to the email inbox, linked with Pinterest.

Step 2: Find the mail that has been sent when the board has been deleted.

Step 3: Next, when you find the mail, open it, and you will see a “Restore” option on a blue button at the bottom section.

Step 4: Click on the “Restore” and your deleted board will again reappear in its original place, which is the ‘Owned by me’ section.

2. Try Other Accounts

It is possible, that, due to some reasons, you may have created another similar Pinterest account and would have saved the board over there.

Hence, you can try logging in to your other Pinterest accounts to find the lost board.

If you are not able to remember the login id and password, then try out.

🔴 Steps To Follow:

Step 1: Go to your current logged-in Pinterest account and Log out from there.

3. Re-join the Board

If by all possible means, you are still not able to find the missing board, then the suitable option left is, to find the same board again on Pinterest and follow it.

Maybe, the board didn’t get deleted, but either you have unknowingly left the board group or they have removed you by mistake, that’s why the board is missing.

🔴 Steps To Follow:

If this is the possible reason, go through the following steps to re-join the board:

Step 1: Log in to your Pinterest account and search for the board you are looking for.
