How to Delete Messages on Pinterest

Simple guide to delete the unwanted messages on the Pinterest.

Often we might send wrong messages or right messages to the wrong persons or make typos in professional texts or a confidential message that needs to be deleted at once. In all these circumstances, we might seek the Delete option. It may occur on various social media apps, and even Pinterest has got its Direct Messaging feature. You can delete sent messages on Pinterest or hide the sent texts like other social media.

The older version of Pinterest has given the Delete conversation option. With the recent update, you cannot delete the entire conversation of a person. The developer has completely removed the delete option. As we all know, Pinterest doesn’t offer an easy-to-use messaging feature like other social media apps. But we can hide the conversation from your inbox.

On WhatsApp or Instagram, you can unsend messages from the person even before they can see them. All you have to do is long-press the message and choose Unsend or Delete for Everyone option.
