How to Stop Pinterest Email Spamming Using DoNotPay?

Pinterest is one of the largest visual social networks, with over 320 million monthly active users worldwide. Nearly one-third of those users are from the United States. Since Pinterest allows users to create visual boards where they can pin different content, it became an immensely developed network of pins, repins, and likes. 

The Pinterest email system is also complex, and sometimes users have their inboxes swamped with Pinterest emails. The thing is that maybe you don’t want the “14 DIY home decor Pins”, Pinterest thinks you might like, or you are not looking to “get inspired with these 12 trending ideas.” 

Sometimes you just need ideas on how to get your spam email revenge. DoNotPay can help you with this.

What Are Some Other Methods to Unsubscribe From Pinterest Emails?

You can stop Pinterest from sending you emails by using two different methods—going through the settings on the Pinterest website or unsubscribing within the email itself.

A new screen will appear, showing which category that email belongs to.

You can either click Confirm or click Edit Settings to set up the preferences on the website.

How to Block Emails From Pinterest Using Your Email Service Provider?

Most email service providers offer various ways to deal with unwanted messages in your inbox. 

In most cases, you can block a specific email address or report email as spam. With some providers, you can try to stop phishing emails by reporting them. In more serious cases, reporting email abuse can also be an option. 

Some of these options are available for both web version and mobile apps. Reporting phishing and abuse is usually only possible directly on the website, but it depends on the platform. 

Stop Pinterest Emails by Blocking Their Email Address Permanently 

You can block spam emails on your Android, iOS device, or a web browser—as long as your email service is compatible with them. The process might vary, but it usually includes these steps:

  1. Login to your account or open the app on your phone
  2. Find the message from Pinterest and open it
  3. Access the menu for additional email options
  4. Find Block Pinterest or a similar option
  5. Click or tap on it

Stop Pinterest Emails by Marking Them as Spam

You can report spam emails to any email service provider but reach for this option only if you tried others, and they didn’t work. If you unsubscribed from the Pinterest email or their website and are still getting emails, you should report it as spam. 

Marking emails as spam can be done on any device or platform on which your email service is available. The process usually includes finding problematic emails, selecting them, and marking them as spam through additional menu options. 

This action will add selected email to the spam folder, where messages are kept for a predetermined number of days, after which they are automatically deleted. You can also clear the Spam folder yourself or delete any emails from it whenever you want.
