How to Unsend Messages on Pinterest

We are all familiar with the feeling of embarrassment, particularly after sending something on Pinterest that we can’t take back. No matter what the reason, sending a message to the wrong person, or incorrectly spelled/grammatical texts, these are enough to embarrass you.

On WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Instagram, and Telegram, you can easily unsend a message before the recipient can read it. You simply need to hold the message and then click the unsend button. As long as they saw the message at the time it was sent, they will not be able to retrieve it after that.

However, Pinterest does not have an unsend option. When you send a message to a Pinterest, you can’t unsend it. If you want to hide this message from the person, you can either report the conversation or block that specific user.
