How to log in to Pinterest
A difficulty or inconvenience that can arise to some users of this wonderful social network to share images and in short, to feed themselves visually with the good taste is precisely, to be able to login to their newly or old created account
That is why, this article aims to clarify some doubts and solve this problem to all those members of Pinterest who have and above all, those new users and people who are taking their first steps in this social network and on the internet, in general.
I hope that it is practical and in the future do not have greater difficulties to enter Pinterest.
Sign in to Pinterest | Initial clarifications
First, it should be noted that only people who have created an account in Pinterest can access and make use of it and people who have not registered cannot log on to Pinterest, of course. Making this point clear, we proceed to review how users should log in to Pinterest.
Sign in to Pinterest | Step 1
The first step is nothing less than to enter the home or Pinterest cover and for this, users have 2 paths or options equally valid, which I describe below (choose the one you find most comfortable for you).
With the search engine : you can enter Pinterest by typing in the search box that you use (Google, Bing or Yahoo) the word that identifies this social network, ie ” Pinterest ” and the results click in, which identifies this site and that usually, always is the first result and they arrive at the cover of Pinterest .
With the URL: you can type in the correct URL or URL of Pinterest that is, www.pinterest.com in the address bar and then, click on Enter of the keyboard (if you are on the computer) this will take you directly to the cover of the site.
Sign in to Pinterest | Step 2
On the homepage or home of Pinterest can display a window with the registration process and also, a button that says Login.
You should click on that button that says: Login (that is, how to access for all users already registered in Pinterest)
Sign in to Pinterest | Step 3
The previous click on Login will take them to another page with a central window with a range of possibilities to enter Pinterest and that are:
Login with Facebook: this option is for those users who have associated their account with Facebook.
Log in with Google: this other option is for users who have associated their account with that of the google social network.
Login with Twitter: This alternative is for users who have their account associated with twitter.
Finally, 2 boxes appear that must be filled for all those users who access in the traditional way to Pinterest and that are the Email and Password. Usually, this is the most used option to enter Pinterest.
When you have added your email and password you click on the button that says Login. With this simple procedure, you will enter your Pinterest account and you will be able to share a world of images and creativity in this visual social network. That’s all, I hope you can access or enter diaphanously into your Pinterest account.
Note the email is the email with which you have registered in Pinterest and the password is the key you created in the Pinterest registration process. Remember to write them correctly, especially the password.
