How to delete a board on Pinterest?

Smartphones have played a crucial role in the increasing traction sites like Pinterest see as they’re readily available via apps on Android and iOS. Launched in January 2010 by Ben Silbermann, Pinterest is one of the largest social networks on the planet with a primary focus on images and to some extent, gifs and videos too.

Pinterest allows users to save their Pins in separate boards, which can then be customised individually. You can collaborate with other Pinterest users and users can also request to join your boards to recommend more Pins. You can also merge boards that you feel have similar content.

However, if you’re looking to do away with a duplicate board or one that’s not relevant anymore, here we’ve put together a simple guide to help you delete your Pinterest boards via a PC (web version), as well as Android and iOS apps.
