If a user wants to get inspiration from Pinterest without creating an account, they are in luck because there is a way to do that. The social platform is a great way to get inspiration for redecorating a room, choosing an outfit, or picking the next nail color like Hannah on Pretty Little Liars. Consumers can even shop on the site.
Recently the company added Pinterest TV to the platform that enables users to shop live. It went a step further and added an augmented reality (AR) feature that allows users to try furniture in a home before purchasing. This was exciting because now consumers could see if a piece fits and looks good in a room before splurging. While Pinterest offers these great features for users, some people just want to browse social media platforms without signing up.

The easiest way to explore Pinterest without logging in is to go to the search bar in the web browser on the desktop and enter the address www.pinterest.com/ideas/ or pinterest.com/explore/. This will direct the user to a home page with categories at the top and another section labeled ‘explore popular ideas’ with various pins. There is also a more button to view more categories. Unfortunately, a pop appears urging the user to sign in while browsing. Fortunately, there is a way to get rid of this.

Another way to browse Pinterest without logging in is with the Pinterest Guest extension on Firefox. This extension enables the user to stop a sign-in pop-up from continuously appearing. To add the Pinterest Guest extension, open Firefox, then click on the menu (three lines) and go to ‘Add-ons’ and themes.’ Search for ‘pinterest-guest’ and click on it in the search results. Then select Add to Firefox. A pop-up menu will appear. Click Add. Another pop-up will appear asking the user if they want to manage add-ons. Click okay.
Users should note that this extension is not monitored by Mozilla security. When ready to browse pins, go to the Pinterest website. This will open up a home page with suggested pins. There may be a pop-up menu asking the users to log in. To stop this, click on the down symbol next to ‘Sign up’ and toggle on ‘Stop request to log in.’ Now, users can browse with no annoyance. It’s even easier on a mobile as the pop-up doesn’t appear when looking at Pinterest on the web browser.
There are many ways to explore from here. Browse the suggested pins, search a specific subject or company, click on ‘Today’ to see what’s been posted recently or click on ‘Explore,’ which will bring the user to the same page as mentioned above. Here click on a category. For example, if the user clicked on ‘Animals,’ they would see featured articles at the top, followed by ‘Activities for animal lovers,’ then ‘Top 10 ideas for Animals,’ ‘Behold these baby animals,’ ‘Top Pinterest searches for Animals’ and ‘Popular ideas.’ All categories are set up the same with themes that fit the subject matter. Now, dive in and get all the inspiration anyone could ever need.
