Secret Boards were recently introduced by Pinterest who announced, “you can use secret boards to keep track of holiday gifts, plan a special event, or work on a project you aren’t yet ready to share with the rest of the world. You can keep your secret boards to yourself or invite family, friends and coworkers to pin with you.”

How to Create a Pinterest Secret Board

To create a secret board, just log into Pinterest, click on your profile and scroll down to the bottom. Then, click Create a Secret Board. You can also click Add+ on the top right-hand corner of Pinterest to select Create Board and turn the Secret button to On.

Create secret Pinterest boardsPinterest notes, “when you add a pin to a secret board, it won’t show up anywhere else on Pinterest—the only place you can see it is on your secret board.  Right now, you can’t make existing boards secret because others people may have already repinned from your board.”  Pinterest currently limits you to three Secret Boards. If you want to create more than three, you’ll need to delete one, or make one visible to everyone. This support article from Pinterest has lots of other dets to help you out.
