  3. Thank you very much for these instructions. I had my account suspended with Pinterest without any reason after a week from creating it. I didn’t even have enough to pin anything yet I got accused of spamming. I contacted them and submitted an appeal and kept doing so for over two weeks without success. I even got someone arrogant from their support asking me to stop and that it is a final decision without telling me the reason for suspending my account.

    Well, I followed your steps and submitted a complaint today to BBB, hoping that this will work.

    Thank you very much again.

    1. Glad to hear that you’re taking the right steps. Did you download the opt-in inside the post for additional tips and Pinterest contact email to follow up? That might help you to solve the problem as well!

        1. Gotcha! Best of luck getting your Pinterest back. And let us know how it goes by coming back here and reply to this comment thread! If your didn’t do anything wrong with your account, then they will have to reactivate your account.

          1. Unfortunately, they refused to reactivate my account and kept repeating the same old broken record using their false claims. I refused their response and demanded evidence of whatever they claim I have done. Let’s wait and see.

          2. You mean they even denied reactivation after BBB complaint? To be honest, they may have a reason there. But you did the exact right thing by requesting evidence. Even if they showed sufficient evidence based on their policies, you can still say you were not aware or clear about these policies and that you won’t make the same mistake again. You may still be able to get your account back by pledging to do it right in the future. Good luck!!

          3. Based on their replay in BBB, I think they haven’t really checked my account. They said that one of their specialists has already responded to my support request. And they just pasted his previous reply that I got in the past!!

            I’m just hoping that their specialist who’s in charge hasn’t taken it personally and now he’s just been stubborn! I don’t know.

            I will follow your advice for sure. You’re the one who helped here and I’m very grateful to you regardless of the outcomes.

            I will keep you updated as things happen 🙂

            Thank you very much again.

  4. Thanks for the heads up, Mary. Social media platforms and search engines are harming free speech. As you said, automatic suspension based on red flag words without taking context into account is not acceptable. We need to stand up for our rights as consumers and citizens, no matter how small.

  5. Great information! I have read several comments from bloggers saying that their Pinterest account was suspended. Fortunately, it hasn’t happened to me (knock on wood!) but I prefer to follow your tips and be prepared just in case. Thank you!

  6. I have not idea Pinterest could ever suspend an account. Thanks for sharing your experience and what to do about it!

  7. Interesting to know what could go wrong. It would have been pain following up to get account activated. Good to know the steps to follow to get it reactivated. Thank you for sharing your experience.

  8. Great post! I use Pinterest on a daily basis and I’m always worried that I will get suspended. Your post is very informative and handy in such a problematic situation. Thanks for sharing!

  9. Wow 😮 that is a real eye opener and I am glad I read about your experience with Pinterest. I just created a business account a few weeks ago and haven’t had a real chance to work on it. It’s great to know the do’s and dont’s.

  10. I just got suspended today! I have no idea why either, I simply spent the day rearranging my boards with their drag and drop feature and pinned less than 20 pins, only 5 of my own.
    So annoying! I hope to get out of Pinterest jail soon because as a new blog (1.5 months old) Pinterest traffic is my only traffic!

  11. Interesting read! Thankfully, I’ve never been suspended and hope it never happens. But it’s good to know the steps to get my Pinterest account reactivated should it occur. Thanks for sharing!
