    • No worries Grandma! Blocking happens to the best of us, even in the virtual world. It’s like misplacing the TV remote –happens to everyone. You should be able to unblock her in no time before Thanksgiving dinner. You can unblock your granddaughter faster than you can say “turkey.” We wouldn’t want any family drama before Thanksgiving dinner!

    • Hi, try these methods below, hopefully it should work:
      1. If you have a direct link to her Pinterest profile, you can try accessing it directly. Ask her to share her Pinterest profile link with you, and click on it to go directly to her profile.

      2. Clear your browser’s cache and cookies, or try using a different browser. Sometimes, browser issues can affect the functionality of certain features on websites.

      3. If you’re using the Pinterest mobile app, try uninstalling and reinstalling it. This can sometimes resolve glitches or issues with app functionality.
