If you are here, I am sure you are new to Pinterest. Pinterest is indeed an awesome platform, which I must say I love a lot.

Click on change(Besides your profile picture) and you will get the option to upload any image from your Desktop or Laptop. Then press on “Done”.
2.How to edit your Pinterest name and Username
Your name is what will appear when people visit your profile. Also, whenever you save a pin, your name will appear on the notifications of your friends on Pinterest.
Therefore you can add both your first and last name. (But you can just your last name). It all depends on your choice.
So, just as the step above, head over to the “Edit the profile” section.
Here you will be able to edit your name, Username and you can also add a nice profile description.
Usually, the profile description(bio) should contain 160 characters or less.
3.Adding extra information is you have a business
Now, if you have a business, you can add more information. But for that, you will need to convert and claim your website with Pinterest.
It’s really very easy. Head over to this free resource which will guide you to convert and claim your website in just a few minutes.
Once you are done, you will be able to add more information to your profile.
As you can clearly see, you can even add a retail location if you have a brick-and-mortar business.
You will be able to add:
- Your address

It was really easy. Now that you know how to update your Pinterest account, there are a few things I would like to mention especially if you are using Pinterest for your blog or online business.
